Here You Are, Already Eight
Here you are, already eight!
It must be something that you ate!
Or is it just the proper date
For someone your age to be eight?
Just yesterday you weren't eight.
You were still seven. Isn't it great
In just one day, on just one date,
To suddenly jump from seven to eight?
So Happy Birthday! Happy Eight!
From early dawn to very late!
And till again you see this date,
Have a good time being eight!
