This one was for my Dad's birthday!


You were born on a Friday
Back in 1954
And your mom gave up chocolate
And she gave it to the lord

You met mom on a good day
Back in 1974
And you both fell in love
Though you didn't know what was in store

I was born on a Wednesday
Back in 1983
The 9th grandchild on both sides
And you started our family

It was April on a Monday
Back in 1996
You gave me a single shining sister
And more love than I knew could exist

And you taught me what it takes to be a man
I love you happy birthday to you Dad

It was July on a Sunday
Back in 2014
A little lady and her son
Came and swept me off my feet

In september on a warm day
Back in 2016
Our family changed forever
But she's still with all of you & me

And you taught me what it takes to be a man
I love you happy birthday to you Dad
