You're Another Year Older Today

Today is Hubby's birthday. To honor his big day, here 's a birthday song that Sheriff John would sing to all the birthday boys and girls on his local children's TV show when Hubby was young:
Put another candle on my birthday cake
We're gonna bake a birthday cake
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I'm another year older today.

I'm gonna have a party with my birthday cake
Come on and take some birthday cake
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I'm another year older today.

We'll have some pie and sandwiches
and chocolate ice cream, too
We'll sing and play the day away
and one more thing I'm going to do.

I'll blow out the candles on my birthday cake
and when I do, a wish I'll make
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I'm another year older today
Happy birthday to you
I'm another year older today.

I love you Hubby

happy birthday R. Hope Joan bought you a cake and didn't try to bake one. I can't believe she knows all the words to the birthday song. Even an oldest cousin can be surprised sometimes.

Happy Birthday Hubby. What was the show where the mother would send in the kids name and the show host would look through a magic mirror or glass and act like they were a wizard or whatever? I do remember Sheriff John....and Kukla Fran and Ollie, Sherry Lewis and her lamb, Howdy Doody...

Linda said...

Happy Birthday to your husband! I hope he had a spectacular day!

Thanks to everyone who wished Hubby a "Happy Birthday." He read all your comments with this big smile on his face... :~D

Okay, so this is way late, but belated birthday greetings to your hubby. His birthday is the same day as my nephew's and the day after my youngest son's. But the main reason I am writing is - I KNOW the Sheriff John song!!! I grew UP watching Sheriff John! So, does that mean we grew up in the same neck of the woods? Your profile does not say where you live now, or where your hubby grew up, so I can only guess. Anyway, that song jumped immediately into my mind, all the verses intact, as soon as I saw that first line.

Oh, I'm here via Rosemary, by the way. :)
