Birthday Song


Last year I wrote a poem for my daughter's birthday.  At her party, we decided to split the group into three groups to make up tunes for the poem--a song contest.  We had a fun time doing this.  Her sister's boyfriend is a musician.  I challenged him to write a "real" melody to the words and perform it in public.  He did this last night at a local club.  I shot a movie of it on my iphone.  It is posted after the words.  I hope you like his version.  I loved it.

Don’t cry on my shoulder
Just ‘cause you’re getting older
Stop making a fuss
No one can sympathize ‘cause we’re so happy
  You’re older than us

Quit your belly-achin’
You’re the birthday star
We’re all your friends
We don’t care how old you are

So blow out those candles
It’s getting hot in here
Celebrate your birthday
Don’t cry in your beer.

Quit your belly-achin’
You’re the birthday star
We’re all your friends
We don’t care how old you are.

Dance, if you still can
To the music’s beat
We’re all here
Celebrating an amazing feat
You’re still alive and kicking
And walking down the street
So quit your belly-achin’
And enjoy the treat.
