Nine Times Nine Plus Nine Birthday
Nine days and she is counting until
Her age will be nine times nine plus nine
She wears a size nine dress, she reminds
Tells me please do not make such a fuss
Nine times I tell her not to worry
Simply dress yourself up to the nines
And we will celebrate your birthday
With all nine times nine candles plus nine
Everything will surely work out fine!
