Me Mum's Birthday

Mum, today you're fifty-two

And you should know we care for you

Although sometimes you make us blue-

Mum, we really love you.

Although you often scream and shout

If the washing's not put out

And nothing there's much ado about-

Mum, we really love you.

Although you worry for no reason

And bash our ears through every season

And though you are devoid of reason

Mum, we really love you.

Mum, we love you

Though you're wrinkled and small.

Mum, we love you

Though you hassle us all.

Mum, we love you

Though your brain is small.

Mum, we really love you.
