B-Day-3--By Gerald McBreen--United States


I'll sing a birthday song
though it may be out of tune
I am hoping it will do.

I hear you are three
and just as proud
as you should be.

If I count on my toe-ies
what comes next
is number four.

So I'll whisper on a breeze
in your dreams Happy B-day
Happy B-day number three.
