Eve Goldberg Birthday songs (40) Lyr Add: LET'S THROW A PARTY FOR OURSELVES 30 Mar 09


I wrote a birthday song for my friend Susan, sort of a bluesy, swingy, torchy tune:

LET'S THROW A PARTY FOR OURSELVES
Words and Music by Eve Goldberg

Every year or so, no matter where you go
You know that day will arrive
That very special morn, the day that you were born
Ain't it good to be alive

CHORUS:
Sing and shout, blow the candle out
Let's throw a party for ourselves

You can fuss and you can fret, you can try to forget
You can let it get into your head
But it's really not so bad, in fact you should be glad
If you weren't getting older, you'd be dead

(Chorus)

So I hope you have some fun on this trip around the sun
And whatever may be your fate
Your friends will stick by you with a love so deep and true
And that's a thing to celebrate

(Chorus)
