I made a cake for you and me
to eat our fill just after tea,
mixed sugar, eggs and milk and flour
and baked it well for half an hour,
I tipped it out upon a tray
and let it cool for half a day,
beat sugar up with butter fat
and added loads of chocolate,
then piled it on and heaped it up
and stuck a candle on the top,
then called you in when it was done
to serenade you with a song,
and watched you blow the candle hard
and open up your birthday card,
and then we cut it into two
and ate our cake, just me and you!

Birthday Wishes

This is your day
swing in and stay a while
toss your coat on the banister
pull up a banjo
jam to the sound of your
upbeat life

You got this far
everything said and done
taste the chocolate drama cake
butter icing boy
cut yourself a slice of
paradise

Now is the time
your options are opening
don’t tinker around the edges
take it away
wear a shiny hat and
go fly high.
