let’s have some fun.
We’ll play some tag,
and laugh as we run.

There are so many games,
we may simply choose.
It doesn’t matter,
if we win or we lose.

Your birthday will be
fantastically funny.
I hope your cake
tastes just like honey.

Enjoy your balloons,
and all of that noise.
You must be thinking
about gifts that are toys.

So, happy birthday,
it’s yours and it’s cool.
It’s time to party,
and not think of school.”

it’s not time to be lazy.
Let’s play games and jump around,
where’s the music, where’s the sound?

It’s your party, you choose the theme,
it’s so much fun, is this a dream?
Let’s have pizza, it tastes real yummy,
two small slices will fill your tummy.

What about a funny clown?
Is there one in this old town?
Whatever you do, make sure to have fun,
it’s your birthday, enjoy the sun.”

Happy birthday! Hope you like toys!
We all know, you’re a big fan of noise.
Hope you enjoy your delicious cake;
deep inside, there might be a snake.

One more thing we’d like to say,
Get off your butt, and go and play.”
