Happy Birthday, Flea



Will you stay in our lovers' story?
If you stay, you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow
So take a chance
With a couple of kooks
Hung up on romancing
We bought a lot of clothes to keep you warm and dry
And a funny old crib on which the paint won't dry
I bought you a pair of shoes
A trumpet you can blow
And a book of rules
Of what to say to people when they pick on you
'Cause if you stay with us you're gonna be pretty kooky too
Will you stay in our lovers' story?
If you stay, you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow
So take a chance
With a couple of kooks
Hung up on romancing
And if you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up this old fool
Don't pick fights with the bullies or the cads
'Cause I'm not much cop at punching other people's dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we'll throw it on the fire and take the car downtown
Will you stay in our lovers' story?
If you stay, you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow
So take a chance
With a couple of kooks
Hung up on romancing

SURVIVING not SURVING. Gosh I need to slow down with writing comments!
Sorry.

Ah yes, #18. Quite unique and perfect for Spring.

I am loving Bel Respiro, and longing for another sniff of Rue Cambon.

Lovely day!
