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!
