I'm Forty-Three

Sung to the tune of “Yesterday” :

I’m forty three
there are pieces falling off of me
now I’m twice as old as I used to be
I can’t believe
I’m forty three.

Why I huff and puff climbing hills
I couldn’t say
At least my memory’s intact I…
what was I going to say ay ay ay?

Forty three
I wish I drank less beer at twenty three
I still feel young but I can no longer see
Oh Happy Birthday,
I’m forty three.

    I hope you have something wonderful planned for the day and that you get all the goodies you were hoping for…and lots of chocolate πŸ˜€


  2. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Michael. Happy birthday to you.

    There, now you don’t have to hear me sing it. It is your lucky day! πŸ™‚


  3. I’ve sung your birthday song, and now I sing your praises! You are an awsome guy and I hope your birthday will be just as awsome! May God show you something special today and you remember to look for it. πŸ˜€


  4. Miss Vox – Thanks for the birthday wish! And that was a nice gift, letting me answer those questions on my birthday. πŸ™‚

    Onelamb – *blush* It’s my priviledge to share my life and faith, it’s wonderful for you to visit and say so!

  5. Ah ha! This is the moment I’ve been waiting for. I’ll make you say the same thing in two posts by also wishing you a happy birthday! Mwuhahaha!

    Happy Birthday, Dad! (I’m going to call you now to bug you with the song.)


  6. Well, that didn’t work. I just tried calling (got the answer machine), but you’ve outsmarted me this year. Have fun at whatever party you may be at.
