Birthday Happy


Birthdays are amazing creatures
Full of contradicting features
They can sometimes be life teachers
Yes, birthdays are amazing creatures

I'm just birthday happy, Honey
Even though we don't have a lot of money
Most of our days seem to come up sunny
And I'm just birthday happy, Honey

Feelin' good as I get older
Except for that pain in my left shoulder
And my back when it gets colder
Yes, feelin' good as I get older

I'm just birthday happy, Honey
Even though we don't have a lot of money
Most of our days seem to come up sunny
And I'm just birthday happy, Honey

You know my mind is sharp as ever
I always come up with something clever
But lots of little things I can't remember
Yes, you know my mind is sharp as ever

I'm just birthday happy, Honey
Even though we don't have a lot of money
Most of our days seem to come up sunny
And I'm just birthday happy, Honey

Older minds can be inspired
Thinking of ways to become retired
A full-time job is not required
Yes, older minds can be inspired

I'm just birthday happy, Honey
Even though we don't have a lot of money
Most of our days seem to come up sunny
Yes, I'm just birthday happy, Honey

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
