Happy Birthday



Happy Birthday Honey, another year has passed
28,29,30,31 they all go by so fast

Presents, cards and flowers all will soon appear
we'll make a toast and have a drink with those that you hold dear

We'll carry out the cake, as chocolate as the day is long
Light up all the candles and sing to you a song

Before you blow them out, close your eyes real tight
Wish for love and happienes and blow with all your might

When you open up your eyes, it will be clear to you
Listen to us clap and cheer, your birthday wish came true

So happy birthday honey another year's begun
You know what they say, "Time flies when you're having fun!
