Before a birthday you should make
A tasty rainbow cake
The candles are blown out then you smell smoke
And then someone tells you a funny joke
You can see people dancing, you can see a parachute
And a funny man wearing a funny suit
You can touch your balloon but stop
You don't want it to go pop
You can hear people laughing and talking
It's home time now so we are walking.
