My 18th Birthday


Oh! On my birthdate,
On my 18th birthday,
When I will be
Now an adult.

On my 18th birthday,
A house will I buy
And stock my cupboard
With lovely clothes and shoes.

Oh! On my 18th birthdate,
I will give gifts,
Millions of good gifts
To the poor beggars.

Oh! On my 18th birthday,
I will travel to space,
And eat on the moon,
With alien friends up there.

On my 18th birthday,
I will find myself,
A damsel
And get betrothed.

Oh on that date,
I will party, dance non-stop.
With the world president.
Oh my 18th birthday!

These was I thinking,
When I realized,
Its just the tomorrow
After the next tomorrow.
