Look Out, Here Comes The Birthday Girl


We composed this birthday song in honor of our dear friend The Dutchess. (You can find her wonderful website here.) Sing along to the tune of "Spiderman" -- the 1960s TV cartoon. You can listen to the tune now playing, them shut off the sound and sing the words below.
-----

Birthday girl, Birthday girl

Not a Duke, not an Earl.

Dutchess this is your day

Beat the drum, hip hooray.

Look out, here comes the Birthday girl.

-----

Happy Birthday Dutchess.
From your devoted friends,

Rattus & Tea Rat

I was thinking of writing you a birthday song to the American tune, Battle Hymn of the Republic, but I thought that might be just a tad over the top.
