Brown Star

I know of a Brown Star
That only very certain people have found
For years and years they been lookin' around
A lot of people lookin' up
But very few of them lookin' down
Well they searched high and low for that little glow
That'll make them happy
Some searched fast and they went on past
Some went slow but couldn't let it go
I know of a Brown Star
That only very certain people have found
You can ask a dog why he's so happy
Just waggin' his tail around
Or a frog what makes him jump around
Follow a sailin' cloud until it dumps
The rain right down
But ask a man and a woman if they've seen
A Brown Star around
Some will say yes and some will say no
Some will just laugh and some will just glow
Some will say why do you ask
Some will say well don't you know
Then there'll be the one that says
It's already been found
But you ask a child and they'll just jump up and down
Sayin' we found a Brown Star
Right on the ground

"Brown Star" was an album that never surfaced, and instead "Clear Spot" took its place. This was, to the best of my knowledge, never recorded as a song.
