C

If you go down to the ocean floor

       Am                         Dm                                            F   

There is a celebrity you may not have seen before 

C         

Not on the stage or the silver screen

Am                                          Dm                                            F

But the intertidal zone where the waves caress the shore

 

              C                   Dm

It's my favourite echinoderm

            Em                         F                                 C

She looks just like she fell from the night sky

            Dm          Em                             Fm  

And I learn to look for her when I'm at the seaside

 

 

                        C                Am               Dm            G

Would you teach me how to be a sea star?

C                   Am               Dm          G

Teach me how to be a sea star

 

                                C

She takes good care of her habitat

   Am                                                      Dm                          G

Cleaning up the rocks and sand, Salty water in her veins

                              C  

And with that tough spiny skin of hers

            Am                                                Dm                                   G           

For fending off the predators, she lives to shine another day

 

 

 

 

 

                 C                Dm

It's my favourite echinoderm

            Em                         F                                  C

She looks just like she fell from the night sky

            Dm           G

And I learn to look for her when i'm at the seaside

 

 

                    C             Am                  Dm          G

Can you teach me how to be a sea star

   C              Am                Dm         G

Teach me how to be a sea star

 

 

   Cm                                             -

Down in the abyssal zone, where the sun has never shone

  -

There is a familiar face

 

Where everything looks strange to us – deep and dark and dangerous

 

A friendly sea star finds it's place…

 

 

                 C                Dm

It's my favourite echinoderm

            Em                         F                                  C

She looks just like she fell from the night sky

            Dm           G

And I learn to look for her when i'm at the seaside

 

                    C             Am                  Dm          G

Can you teach me how to be a sea star

   C              Am                Dm         G

Teach me how to be a sea star

 

     C                            Dm     

So I take care of what I love

            Em                  F

The water and the air above

            C                                  Dm    

The plants that grow beneath my feet

            Em                              F

The clothes I wear, the food I eat

 

 

 

                    C             Am                  Dm          G

Can you teach me how to be a sea star

   C              Am                Dm         G

Teach me how to be a sea star
