On the beaches of Mexico starfish are washed and left on the sand by the tide When the tide goes away and the sun keeps on burning the starfish are left there to die On a beach there in Mexico a young girl is walking she's usually walking alone she bends and pick up a starfish she sees there and into the sea it is thrown On a beach there in mexico a young girl is walking one day she's not walking alone an old man who see her throwing the starfish and there something that he wants to know He says" Hey little girl don't you know there are hundreds of beaches in all Mexico and thousands of starfish wash up on each one. Nothing at all can be done.Nothing at all can be done." The young girl continues to pick up the starfish and throw them back into the waves the old man says" Silly girl you're making no difference there too many starfish to save" The young girl just looks the old man in the eye and stares past the waves to the sun. as she trows another starfish back into the sea she says" A difference was made to that one."

  • extra verse 05/07/2016

    We added on the following verse to the end of this: On the beaches of Mexico an old man was walking, he's walking one day through the sand. He bends down and picks up a starfish he sees there and says to that thing in his hand. He says, "Hey starfish please don't be afraid. I'm going to throw you back into the waves. For a girl found me here just like you by the sea, and she made a difference to me. She made a difference to me."
