GUEST,Becky Tune Req: Big Jon and Sparkie's Birthday Song (18) RE: Tune Req: Big Jon and Sparkie's Birthday Song 04 Feb 11

One person had the same words I know. I love this song and even sing it to strangers if I am in a restaurant or someplace and learn that someone is celebrating a birthday. People love it because it is different. My mother and my aunts taught this to me many years ago and one of my aunts decided to give it a personal twist and in stead of singing: From Mommy and Daddy too, she inserted the names of the wife and whomever is the current President so in 2011, it would be Michelle and Barack too, or Barack and Michelle, whatever.
It makes it fun and I find that many people are so surprised by the song that they often don't recognize the President and First Lady's names and will ask me who they are and then are embarrassed; but I don't ever chide them for that. If I am singing this to a young person, teenager particularly, I will ask, when I am through, who those names belong to; they often don't know either so I tell them; important to do so, I think.
