You Were Born

  
If you aren’t already, you’ll soon be aware
That life’s very odd and has weirdness to spare
But nothing will blow your mind more on this earth
Than to think of your life and the fact of your birth

Forever the world turned and you weren’t in it
One day there was no you, and then in a minute
Inside of your mother, you suddenly were
A whole brand new person, what a thing to occur!

And then came the day when you ran out of space
You were finally ready to show off your face
Not one single human had ever yet met you
Then, boom, there you were, for us all to come get you

Each year we make cake just to celebrate that
It explains the balloons and that weird pointed hat
Because where there was silence, your bold voice appeared
And our life is more magical now that you’re here
