It’s that lovely time of year again
Those words we love to hear again.
It’s not an ordinary kind of day
It’s your long-awaited birthday.
We have brought out the cake
And all the candles it would take
To signify to anyone who sees
You are the star of the festivities.
Maybe some presents will appear
Maybe some will forget which year
But each person there will be
There for you and happy to be.
There may be some jokes told
About you being dodderingly old
Or around longer than the earth
But all will be done in great mirth.
Others will look back pleasantly
To the halls of pleasant memories
And be proud to have been around
And hearing once again that sound.
Happy Birthday to you, again
Just like it was way back when
And just like then, it is today
That we wish you Happy Birthday.
