Life’s A Song

imageToday, on my birthday, I hope you’ll indulge a bit of whimsy.  I share with you a birthday song I wrote through the night.  Though I’m not musical, I thought it was cute. Of course in my head, Tony Bennett is singing it.

Opening
They say I’m getting old
Add another birthday to my equation
But if I might be so bold
On this ceremonial occasion
I’d like to point out that

Chorus
When you learn why you’re here
Life’s a gift from Our Creator
The music drowns out each fear
It’s a symphony of laughter
Things’ll happen, both right and wrong
But when you know what you’re after
You’ll want to sing along
It’s tune is so upbeat, Life’s a song

Verse 1
I believe that Jack was right
Thirty nine is just a number
The future looks so bright
I’ve cast my doubts asunder
Life’s melody’s too sweet
To let worry cramp my style
So Each day I’m gonna greet
With a prayer and a smile

Chorus
When you learn why you’re here
Life’s a gift from Our Creator
The music drowns out each fear
It’s a symphony of laughter
Things’ll happen, both right and wrong
But when you know what you’re after
You’ll want to sing along
It’s tune is so upbeat, Life is a song

Verse 2
What’s age but a mere digit
Loved ones make it all worthwhile
Don’t worry, don’t fidget
Sell that frown, buy a smile
Celebrate this live and live it
It’s not rocket science or physics
Stand clear and strong
Pick a happy lyric
Life’s a song

Chorus
When you learn why you’re here
Life’s a gift from Our Creator
The music drowns out each fear
It’s a symphony of laughter
Things’ll happen, both right and wrong
But when you know what you’re after
You’ll want to sing along
It’s tune is so upbeat, Life’s a song

Closing
So like a happy cartoon
Today and all year long
Hum your snappy tune
Life’s a song!
