  • Lyric ©2001 Lawrence Mark Lesser
    may sing to tune of "Happy Birthday to You" (Mildred J Hill and Patty Smith Hill)

    Happy birthday to you--
    Bring another 22:
    Then we'll have even chances
    Of a match in this room...
    Or many more!

    Happy birthday to me--
    Bring another two-fifty-three:
    Then I'll have even chances
    Someone matches with ME...
    Or many more!
