Thread Name: BS: Happy Birthday Noreen, Rowana &Beethoven
Subject: Happy Birthday Noreen, Rowana &Beethoven
For Noreen, y'all know the tune, altogether now...

Joyful, joyful, we adore you,
Now that you've turned forty-two!
Don't look back, and don't regret
A single %@#ing thing you do!

Ever singing, march we onward,
In the Mudcat song of life.
Joyful music leads us sunward
In the triumph song of life.

And for Rowana, to the tune of the 5th movement of Beethoven's Sixth Symphony...

A Birthday, a birthday,
Join in and celebrate.
Today's Rowana's birthday,
She's only thirty-ei-eight, ei-eight, ei-eight, da, da, da-da, da, da...

And as the critics said when they heard a Beethovan symphony, "That was a nice theme, let's leave before he starts developing it."
