|Sing, little Madeline! Sing for joy!
Your birthday is today!
Perhaps you'll get a doll or toy
With which to dance and play.
Perhaps you'll have a birthday cake
With candles to blow out,
A celebration for your sake
With loved ones all about.
Sing, little Madeline! Sing a song
Of happiness and pleasure!
This day is your day all day long,
A day that you will treasure.
