The Lyrics

The above date is Gwen Stefani's (Lead singer's) birthday. She was born in the year 69 and this is a great alternative to the Birthday Song. That is also the birthday of Tim Chaytor-Jackson, my college assistant.
[Gwen tuning in radio, random voices are heard]

[Reggae intro]

[Verse 1]
There's times when I go shopping
For presents for my Gwen
There's times when this dress superstore
Seems full of peeps
You see the patterns on my bag like someone else
And behind me just walking
You're shopping too

It's October 3rd 1969
That is Gwen's birthday, October the 3rd
Do not forget it, October the 3rd
It's October 3rd

[Verse 2]
You buy some very cool gifts
And you need to plan some time
But, lately you've been trying your own best
And I'm doing the rest
And, you give her the prettiest cards
That I've ever seen
And when it's really kind
I know it's not that mean


[Verse 3]
So many feelings we have felt
Grumbling, crying and laughing
I've seen right through inside your bags
And the stuff looks cooler
I've seen right through inside your bags
And the stuff looks cooler
Cooler, cooler

[Lady saw's Part / Verse 4]
That's so true
Cuz October the 3rd
That is Gwen's birthday
In the last sixties year
She had started living
Whenever that's coming
My clock keeps a-ticking
For the Sunday morining in 2004
There's another year for celebrating all along
Aside from her brothers and her sister too
That's good for our Gwennie
Oh yes, I'm sure
Cuz every now and again
I want more

[Verse 5]
You've splashed out all your vouchers
And all you've got left is none
And somehow you're so full of kindness
I guess we're meant to be


October the 3rd
Mmm, mmm, mm
October the 3rd (X4)

[Radio tuning until the end]
