Birthday cake all piled up high
Reason to eat until we die
Stuff yourself just like a pig
Strike the band and do a jig
Fun we share in special way
Just because it is your day
Eat and laugh and just be merry
Don't you even feel contrary
It's your time to dance and sing
Don't you worry about a thing
No one's looking eat that cake
It took us hours just to bake
Huff and puff make a wish
Clean up crumbs upon your dish
Smile and say well that was fun
Time to take the 10 mile run
Get that wheelchair oiled and ready
Keep it going fast and steady
You don't have to win the race
Just another year to face.
