Happy Unbirthday!

To me with such cheer

You’re all invited

Come with a plus one

Here in our garden

We’ll have lots of fun

No need to bring gifts

We’ll have a good run

We’re having a grill

Sausages and fish

Salad, fruit and spud

Lots of drinks all chill

Live band if you like

Gives us all the thrill

Lucky with the sun

Come all, no question!
