  • Lyrics: D D #5 D intro: The big day comes the stars align we join to celebrate D Bm E7 A7 The only thing that’s missing is a dancer in a cake D Dmaj7 F#m7 G Friends will bring fine presents old Glenlivet from the bar Em E7 A7 But these special gifts I’ve brought for you are worth much more by far D G D 1. For taking giant steps here’s a special pair of shoes D Bm E7 A And your own private orchestra that never plays the blues Bm A G E7 Here’s an acrobat technique so your balance you will keep D A G Gm D And a mountain bike with ninety gears for when the road gets steep A D G D etc 2. Here’s a crazy little cup that always overflows And a way that’s never lost no matter where it goes To the people that you love here’s a special little link And some flamingos fresh from Florida to keep you in the pink 3. Here’s a special pirate map to the treasure that you are And a magic sort of rope made for hitching to a star Here’s a special talking cat explaining landing on one’s feet And a Scrabble Game that never never spells defeat 4. For dancing through the world here’s a pair of dancing feet And some food that you don’t like that you never have to eat And the airiest of grace for when you’re dancing cheek to cheek And a paddle if you get yourself stranded up that creek 5. Here’s an X marked “you are here” if you suspect you’re not all there And an extra ounce of poise if you should start to lose your hair Here’s a big red paper ticket for your one free ride And a magic microscope for a clearer look inside A7 D D #5 D Outro: Now that’s the end of all my toys you must keep them in your heart D Bm E7 A7 And promise to remember me when we’re far apart D Dmaj7 F#m7 G Remember that I love you with these blessings you receive Em G A7 D And live each day to make them real and not just make-believe
