As the birds chirped,
The new dawn set in
And a life was brought forth
The ones who saw it
Celebrated,danced and ululated

That was many moons ago
And time really flies
Faster than anything that exists
Ohh! what a time

Today, you’ve grown
Become an inspiration
A vivid model
And a shoulder to lean on
To so many
Both existing
And yet to come

Happy birthday
As you leap into another period
In your life!
