Sixteen candles with nine blown out
Plenty of time to pout and put the blocks awayT
To save 'em for a rainy day
From the garden to the grade, sit still in a frame
Speak when spoken to and no more nap time for you

I could leave this place any day
And float through the jet stream
Disappear, silence kept for years

Someone took my breath away before my wish was made
So I painted my face like a party balloon
Pin the tail on the donkey and get down with the clowns
Have your cake...& go back for second rounds
My head will be in the clouds by the time they get their party favors
They won't be able to figure out this birthday roundabout

I could leave this place any day
And float through the jet stream
Disappear, silence kept for years
Now, all those years are gone
I'll still sing along
You may find your rain
On some new trail beyond your window pane

Who will break my fall? Will you break my fall? Will I bump my head again?
Who will break my fall? Will you break my fall? Will I live to tell the tale?
Could you please forgive me? I lost my bout with gravity
And if you choose to miss me
Please let me get up on my own, on my own
