Terry Mansfield

Happy birthday.

I know a bloke and it’s no joke
And I can tell you it’s no rumour
Because lets’ pause for the applause
Today you turn 70 and not one minute sooner.

I know you’ve been through thick and thin
And have maintained your good humour
So, from me and your fans on Medium
You’re a true-blue baby boomer.

So, have a happy birthday mate
Good health and happiness too
Take it from me, I should know
I’m there and a true blue.

It’s time to let your hair down,
That’s if you’ve any left,
Celebrate till it gets late,
My friend I’m so impressed!

Find yourself a shady place
And stretch out on a branch
Just like a koala bear
Or a nap back at the Ranch!
