Song

Birthday Song
Lyric ©2005-2006 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!
