The Lyrics

Reading through The One Thread That Matters
Wond'ring what Arwen's song should say
Then her birthday passed-I'm, sure it was a blast
But there was no song from Jeff or Leo Jay

Well, birthday songs ain't easy
You know how hard they can be
The way things are going
She'll get one when she's thirty!

Chucky tried to give us a breather
No updates for a day or two
But it was worth the wait
Ash put up Terry Tate
Songs from JD, Kristof and Stu

"Jeff, were you being lazy?
I guess Leo fell asleep?
The way things are going
They'll finish when I'm thirty!"

Jeff was looking at the screen cross-eyed
Leo found some pix of Vin D
L tried a message stream
ESS color scheme
Jeff said, "I've got a fragment with bad spelling"

Well, birthday songs ain't easy
You know how hard they can be
The way things are going
She'll get one when she's thirty!

Tried to write a song for a birthday parody
But everything was less than flattering
Johnny D, what a guy
Suggested we try
A parody bout having no ideas - think!

Leo wrote a song bout Last Thursday
Apologized because it was late
Leo had so much fun
He wrote another one
Even made it worth Arwen's wait

Well, birthday songs ain't easy
You know how hard they can be
The way things are going
She'll get one when she's thirty!

Jeffrey spent the week in the doghouse
Needed a way out of this fix
Jeff said with a gasp, "Arwen, I'm sorry I'm last"
But here's your first happy birthday for 06!

Well, this song wasn't easy
You know how hard it can be
I finally got going
At least you're not quite thirty!
I finally got going
At least you're not quite thirty!

Though I commented when I saw the preview on TOTTM, let me just say for the official record: "Brilliant! And not just because one of my many pseudonyms found his way into it!" Way to make silk shirt out of a cow's rear!
