Oh, Brother

Happy Birthday to you, who is truer than true


Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! From Jolie, Leah, Cal & Eddie
Hard to believe you're 109 already!  

We wanted to thank you for all of your rhymes
We've read them a hundred, no, thousands of times

We've counted Ten Apples on Top, just like you
We practice our sounds when your Mr. Brown Moos

We eat Green Eggs and Ham, and sometimes with cheese
We cheer for The Lorax when he speaks for the trees

We study our placemaps, just so we'll know
What you mean when you say, Oh the Places You'll Go! 

We laugh when the Grinch puts on Santa disguises
And wipe tears from our eyes when his heart grows three sizes

We hear whos like Horton, and still we don't stop!
When Dad comes home from work, we Hop on our Pop!

And so to pay tribute, and show that we care
We woke early this morning, and we slicked up our hair

Cal put on a hat like the cat that you drew
And the girls picked out dresses like Cindy Lou Who

And then, off we went to proudly declare
That we're grateful for you, and the joy that you share!
