An alternative to the usual birthday song...written for someone special


Happy, happy Birthday
(J.Sule and G.Rogers June 2014)

Today’s the day of your birthday bliss
We’ve been waiting the whole year for this
I’ve been looking for the perfect gift
But what can I give to the one I adore?
You are the star on this special day
You are the planets and the Milky Way
You make the sun shine its golden rays
So what can I give to the one I adore?
All that I give, you give so much more

Happy, happy birthday baby
May your wishes and dreams come true
I’m sending all my kisses to you and
All my loving too.

Tonight’s the night for dancing and song
Friends and fam’ly will make up the throng
I know they’ll bring their presents along
But what can I give to the one I adore?
Your face will glow with every surprise
Delight will sparkle in your brilliant eyes
The pile of gifts are gonna underline (that)
I don’t have a gift for the one I adore
What can I give to the one I adore?


Where is the gift that will prove your worth?
I’ve searched the shops in heaven and earth
Nothing I found could honour your birth
But what I can give – may be right, may be wrong
Here’s what I give – my heart and my song

Both Sides of the Line's cd, Sideshow, is " a record chock full of slinky country tunes, built upon 21st Century ‘adult contemporary’ bones. Digging a little beneath the surface you will find cooing swing come-ons here (Magical Man), fleeting touches of Americana there (Macs General Store), rockabilly beats and soft rock tendencies throughout." (Ricardo Kerr, NZ Musician). ... more
