That greeting card should say it all
I searched the aisles up and down
To find the perfect card
The one that says it all to you
How could it be so hard?

That greeting card should be the best
It has to be the one
The one that has a touching side
But also has some fun

You know the kind of card I mean
The one that you would keep
That you would fondly think about
Before you go to sleep

I wouldn’t settle for some card
That didn’t make you smile
Or make you feel all soft inside
Just for a little while

I didn’t want a smaltzy card
Or one that was too long
Or one that when you opened it
Would play some silly song

No, no it had to be a card
That says just what I feel
And you would know that every word
Inside that card is real

And so it took me half a day
To find this card for you
It has an extra postage note
But what else could I do?

It says, WITH DEEPEST SYMPATHY
Right on the cover page
Then, HAPPY BIRTHDAY follows that
‘Cause you have reached that age

Inside the card there is a place
That you will have to fill
Just sign your name and send it back
To put me in your will

That greeting card means more to me
Than it might mean to you
In fact it means the world to me
Oh... and Happy Birthday, too
