The Lyrics

Happy birthday everyone !

What you taste are carrots, and
Oh Boy! Aren’t they nutritious?
But let’s not let that spoil an
Occasion this auspicious!

“Yum little little little, yum little “Aye” ( 4x )

I helped me mum bake me a cake
When I was very young
I watched her stir and decorate
And all the while she sung

Our house smelled like a baker’s heaven
And it pleased me nose
Choc’late layers were of seven
Pretend it’s one of those! ……OHHH

Never filled with money, neither
Funny nor religious
I owe, I know, rates are low, I’ll
Pay it expeditious!

“Spend little little little, spend little “Aye” ( 4x )

So we scrimp and save and pray to pay
All the dollars lent
I teach and preach each day about the
Value of a cent

But if by chance, pigs should fly and
We’d win the lottery
Then I’ll fly in the Queen of England
For a spot of tea! …. OHHH

Still, some will say “They’re Passe”, and
Not at all prodigious
No dismay, live for today, I’ll
Sing it repetitious!

“Fun little little little, fun little guy” ( 2x )

Of course it’s much more fun in Morse code
Which is – dit dit dit – dit dit dah – dit dah dah dit – dit – dit dah dit
It’s so easy a caveman can do it… Right?
( UHHHhheee? )

But, then again it takes quite long
Perhaps… Another way ( Hmmmm )…

Let Nearly Normal Words Prevail
It’s Time To Seize The Day!

And please, don’t use ‘em sparefully,
I don’t… Just ask me wife
A prime example ( yep )
It’s adios, good bye cruel world
They’ve got a short shelf life!

Unlike gramma, she’s 102… hehehe

Nice take on an old favorite! Now I'm getting me some carrot cake from Safeway

Thought I'd drop in here as a courtesy. Imaginative stuff with lots of variety and a fine vocab range, tying in several themes. The syllable count seems a bit iffy here and there - perhaps just the way I'm, reading it, but I know there are minor glitches in my efforts too. Five slices of chocky cake at 300 per cent interest.
