A Star Named After You
"A Star Named After You"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.
I went and did it, I've gone and done it
So go ahead and check it out
Could’ve bought you a diamond, could’ve bought you a car
Step outside tonight, and see how special you are
I bought you a star, there it is over there
I bought you a star, just tilt your head up and stare
I bought you a star, and I named it after you
And now you know that my love is true
It's official, I’ve got the paper work to prove it
Just thought I’d go ahead and do it
We'll use a telescope, and chances are we’ll go far
You’re one in a million, you know that you are
A born romantic, that’s me
I had to have it, and now you can see
It’s yours alone for forever more
You can never say that I’m a bore
After I bought it, oops, someone else bought it too
They sold the same star to some other dude
They charged us each a fortune, should be put behind bars
Some day you’re gonna pay, you know who you are
A fool in love, that’s me
Some things in life, should always be free
Make a wish and maybe it’ll come true
Maybe you’ll wish it wasn’t such a stupid thing for me to do

On this one, I played a djembe for a "kick" track, a snare, two rhythm acoustic tracks panned wide, a hi-hat cymbal, acoustic bass, lead guitar, and lead vocal - a typical combination for me.
