A Very Merry Late Birthday!!!!

One of our blog friends had a birthday this past Monday. She may think I forgot but I didn't. I even got her a card.....ahem....and it is sitting here right beside me.

I wish I could link you to her but I am having computer-user problems. You all know her anyway.

I have, however, written a few special short songs to let her know how special she is. I wasn't able to write the actual melody because of the countless hours I spent on the lyrics. I wanted to make sure it "spoke" to everyone that read it. So I sat down and I wrote, I deleted, I pondered and I wrote some more. Finally I was able to come up with exactly what I wanted to say.

So, Happy Belated Birthday Edie.
And these songs are especially for you!!

(Sing to the tune of Three Blind Mice)

Edie E
Edie E

Edie Edie E
Edie Edie E

E-Edie Edie E-E-Edie
E-Edie E-Edie E E Edie
E-Edie E-Edie E-E-Edie


(This next song is sung to the tune of Ring Around the Rosies)

E-Edie Edie Edie
E-Edie Edie Edie

.............I had to stop and wipe a tear from my eye while typing that. It just touched me and at the risk of sounding proud, I just think that the lyrics to these tunes are so touching and paint a beautiful picture of our good friend.

(This is my last song. Please sing it to the tune of I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy)

Edie Edie Edie Edie
Edie Edie Edie E
E-E-E-Edie Edie E-Edie.

E-Edie Edie Edie Edie.
Edie Edie E-Edie.

Edie Edie Edie E
Edie Edie Edie

Yes you really are a great friend to have! Thank you so much. I seem to remember your card sitting on my counter when it was your birthday. LOL! It's not expected but I'm so blessed that you remembered. :D (I'm really bad about remembering birthdays.)

I love those songs! I could never have come up with the lyrics like you did. You are SO musical! ♪♫♪

Thank you my friend!

I am so glad to be reading this, I mean singing this, right now beeeecause, I was just chattin' at 'er on (the dreaded) facebook and now I can go on back there and give her a birthday shout. Love it when the timing works out so well like that.

I finally wrote on my poor neglected blog again today. *sigh*

Let's play another word game soon.

I just posted a song on Edie's fb wall- the song was "Happy Birthday" sung to the tune of Happy Birthday, which is really great and all except her birthday, never will work.
