Seven years! That's not so long.
Just the right time for a song.
A happy Happy Birthday song!
If you like it, sing along!

Seven years! Imagine that!
Forty-nine, if you're a cat.
Good thing that you're not a cat!
You'd be middle-aged! Imagine that!

Seven years! A long, long time!
But nowhere near as long as mine!
Each year is precious. I like mine,
Grateful for the gift of time.
