Birthdays are that one special day just for you
Everyone is focused on you all day through
You get so many presents and good wishes from friends and family
Your head is spinning with happiness; you feel like you’re in fantasy
You get so many phone calls that say
“Oh it’s your special day! Happy Birthday!”
You blow out the candles on your cake and make a wish
And you find you are still smiling long after the party is done
You open the presents and joy fills your heart
For the rest of the day that feeling of love will not depart
Then you say goodbye to everyone you’ve seen
And sigh to yourself, what a great day it’s been!
Counting the last minutes down, you feel that final buzz
And you feel amazing, you don’t know why, It’s just because
You go off to bed and smile to yourself
And hear the seconds hand from the clock on the shelf
Three… two… one…
The day is finally done.
What a Happy Birthday this has been!
