To paint pictures just for you,

So when each birthday comes around,

I can send you quite a few.

Eat until you have to stop!

To have reached that stage

When people who look old

Who are only my age.

Happy Birthday form the heart

'Cause that's where all great wishes start!

Born on Monday,

Fair in face;

Born on Tuesday,

Full of God's grace;

Born on Wednesday,

Sour and sad;

Born on Thursday,

Merry and glad;

Born on Friday,

Worthily given;

Born on Saturday,

Work hard for your living;

Born on Sunday,

You will never know want.

Here's a posy of flowers, and a basket too,

With Birthday greetings all for you.

So on this very special day

I would like to say to you

I hope you'll always find happiness

In whatever you may do.

To me, fair friend, you never can be old,

For as you were when first your eye I eye'd,

Such seems your beauty still.

- William Shakespeare

Sing a song of Birthdays

Full of fun and cheer

And may you keep on having them

For many a happy year.

Another candle on your cake

Well there's no need to pout

Be glad that you have strength enough

To blow them all out!

Roses are red

Violets are blue

Stop your complaining...

I'm older than you!
