lyrics

BIRTHDAY PRESENT (© DC Cardwell)

It’s your birthday, happy birthday,
I hope you have a good one.
When you came here on your first day
You felt the breath of someone.

When the sun shines down,
And the rain falls down,
You will grow up strong and high.
They are good for you,
They were made for you,
Like a present from the sky.

On your birthday please remember
All the good things that you have done.
On your worst day you’ll forget them
And you’ll think of all the bad ones.

When the sun shines down,
And the rain falls down,
You will grow up strong and high.
They are good for you,
They were made for you,
Like a present from the sky.

Tried to buy something to suit your taste
But didn’t quite know how.
Birthday past and birthday future,
Here’s your birthday present now.
