The Lyrics

not actually true but how I would imagine it would be like
Born right at the end of Feb
Don't see my birthday most years, what's up with that
It's just a short month most years just 4 weeks
The calendar says I must still be a kid, yeah

Was born on a leap day
So I'll always stay young yay
That keeps aging at bay
I've heard some say oy vey, now

People ask me how old I am now
When I tell them they have a cow
Just have to laugh when people have birthdays
And they want me to go away

Born on a leap day
Not getting older yay
People tell me no way
Well what could I say

What do I put my age at on forms
The year I was born it wasn't the norm
Went to get a drivers license
They said well this doesn't make sense, no

My birthday parties on the wrong days, yeah
All the guests were confused, kept asking questions
Some years it's on the day

Oh tell me where have all the years gone
I'm getting better not older now

Down on the calendar I put my birthdate
So I change the month a little late
Watches without months sometimes get it right
Then need to adjust for its oversight

Age is my shoe size yay
I am younger than they
Less time in the sun's rays
Not as much time to pay

People complain and then tell me hey
But yeah it's all okay
Told the horse, it said nay
Born on a leap day
