Seventy one years young

Seventy one years young.

Today, is such a lovely day
It’s time for celebration
I’d like to spread it all around
To every single nation
That today it is your birthday
And you, my precious one
You never really age at all
You be like the morning sun.

On this day, your special day
I want to tell you this
That at seventy-one years old
You still give me such bliss
In fact my love grows stronger
As each moment passes by
I know I’m going to love you
Until the day I die.

Have a sweet and lovely day
My lady, sweet and true
You celebrate this special day
And me, my love for you
You are my song, sweet lullabies
I’ll always sing for you
Remember on this day of days
That my love’s forever true.
