I'm wishing you another year
Of laughter, joy, and fun,
Surprises, love and happiness,
And when your birthday's done,
I hope you feel deep in your heart,
As your birthday's come and go,
How very much you mean to me,
More than you can know

Fortunately all went well after a night of airconditioning.
