What can you say to a man who has every thing
When you give him a birthday gift?
Where health and wealth and happiness
Are served up in a special dish –
A dish made from the choicest pieces
From the fecundity of life –
The gift of lovely children,
A home and a loving wife;
Upon this ample bounty
We add our little say;
May fortune continue to smile on you
Forever and a day.
