"Your Very Own Star" is a song from "Jay Jay and the Stars at Night". It's sung by Big Jake as he and the others look at the stars and he tells the story of how one of them led him back home, and someday it would happen to one of them.

This song serves as the twentieth track on the album "Tunes From Tarrytown", and is also the ninth track on the "Sing Along Songs" cassette.


Big Jake: When I was just a little plane,
I learned about the stars.
How even though they seem so close,
They're really very far.

I learned to see the shapes they make,
And how they're never changing.
Yet even though they stay the same,
They're always re-arranging.

I picked my very own one night,
And always watched to see,
Sometimes here, sometimes there,
I learned where it would be...

And later when I flew alone,
I never had to worry.
If I got lost, I'd find my star,
And be home in a hurry.

So pay attention to the stars,
And find your very own.
Just when you think you've lost your way...
Your star will lead you home.
