Happy Birthday To Me


Went out last night with a few friends to celebrate, and this is the place we ended up. I loved the hat they got me - it seemed to do the trick with the ladies. As the evening ascended to giddy heights of carnality, I seemed to remember it was Johnny Cash's birthday as well. Happy Birthday, Johnny, you were fabulous. I hope people sing my songs when I'm as dead as you are. Let's hear it:

Six-foot-six, he stood on the ground,
He weighed two hundred and thirty-five pounds,
But I saw that giant of a man brought down to his knees by love.

He was the kind of a man who would gamble on luck,
Look you in the eye and never back up,
But I saw him cryin' like a little whipped pup because of love.

You can't see it with your eyes; hold it in your hand;
But like the wind that covers our land;
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man,
This thing called love.
It can lift you up; never let you down;
Take your world and turn it all around.
Ever since time nothing's ever been found,
That's stronger than love.

Most men are like me, they struggle in doubt,
They trouble their minds, they in and they out,
Too busy with livin' to worry about a little word like love.
But when I see a mother's tenderness,
As she holds her young close to her breast,
Then I thank God that the world's been blessed,
With a thing called love.

You can't see it with your eyes; hold it in your hand;
But like the wind that covers our land;
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man,
This thing called love.
It can lift you up; never let you down;
Take your world and turn it all around.
Ever since time nothing's ever been found,
That's stronger than love.

Ever since time nothing's ever been found,
That's stronger than love.
