forty-six candles

make me a birthday cake 
then remove ten of  the candles
then you can love  the girl 
beneath the woman

forty-six candles makes a glaring
light....when you love a thirty-six
someone the same night

take care not to disturb
the cake and all;  you just
slip around and get 
the ten candles off

forty-six candles make a glaring
light....the man that  you love
turns thirty-six this same night

take them away
....take my hand
we will dance woman to man
to the thirty six candles on
our cake tonight
