Gary's Birthday Party

Words and Music by Brian Fife



At Gary's birthday party, everyone was there.
Gary's birthday party, it was quite the affair
At Gary's birthday party, we had loads of fun
Someone hired a magician; someone fired off a gun…

A circus clown came uninvited and juggled with his floppy feet,
Then we all sat down to Cajun cooking;
I'm telling you that it was mighty sweet.
There was gumbo, jambalaya! (echo)
I thought my mouth would catch on fire! (echo)
Catfish and alligator! (echo)
Etoufee and mashed potatoes! (Mashed potatoes?) Mashed potatoes!

La la la la la la la la la la la la la. La la la la la la la la, la la la la la la.

47 doves were released into the air.
We hoped it would be 50, but 3 of them never made it there.
At 2 am, a fight broke out, and with righteous indignation,
The police barged right through the door,
But then they joined in the celebration.
La la la….
At Gary's birthday party, everyone was there.
Gary's birthday party, it was quite the affair.
At Gary's birthday party, everyone's a friend.
Gary's birthday party, we truly thought that it would never end.


SPOKEN OVER DRUM BREAK:
Voice 1: Man, that was some party!
Voice 2: It sure was! My favorite part was when the priest crash landed in a hot air balloon on the front lawn!
Voice 3: My favorite part was when Gary opened one of his gifts and a live puppy jumped out!
Voice 1: Wait a minute… Were you even at Gary's party?
Voice 2: Of course I was! EVERYONE was there!

La, la, la…
