What can you say about a girl called Shona?
On her 39th birthday?

Pretty, accomplished and quite brilliant
Organized, witty, and so talent-ed
Kind and lovely, generous to bo-ot
On her 39th birthday!

Comes to visit me in Ohi-o
Freezes her butt off, cleans my hou-se
Takes my kids to Chuck E Che-ese
(But not on her 39th birth-day.)

To my sweetie she's a dahling
To my Eddy she's my Patsy
If you don't get this, go watch Ab-Fab
On her 39th birth-day

She has lived the whole world over
An adventurer and a rover
Now she lives Do-wn Un-der
On her 39th birth-day

She makes me laugh until I pe-ee
She makes me laugh until I whe-eze
She makes me laugh 'til I beg stop-Ple-ase
I'll call her for her 39th birth-day

What can you say about a girl called Shona?
She's my sister I'm proud to sa-ay
I hope everything goes her wa-ay
On her 39th birth-day!

Was singing it with gusto while reading over Luke's shoulder. He said NO! YOU HAVE TO STOP THIS SINGING!! and threatened to turn off his computer. So, I had to read it sedately. Not as much fun, but did not detract from the great rhyming and sentiments. She IS looking like a positive infant, which makes me feel better as to have your eldest an infant reflects well on your age as the mom! Happy Birthday again Sho. Love you both. Marmie.
