For Janet Cloos on her 30th birthday 7.7.1990
It's time for joy and celebration,
oh, how time does fly!
But we'll have champagne and cheers
for your thirty happy years;
'cause now's the 7th of July!
It's nice to be here for your birthday,
and seeing you is such a thrill!
Well, I know that's nothing new,
'Cause you're more than beauty, too;
and you just may not be perfect, but still
Cloos, You're very close,
Damn close, Janet Cloos,
You're close, You're pretty, Cloos;
Let's have a toast to Janet Cloos!
In your career with your computers,
You've come a long, long way;
And you spend your days and nights
working with your bits and bytes;
So we're glad that you could make it today;
And here your friends are gathered 'round you;
We come from near and far;
Well, of course we had to be
here for your anniversary;
And we may leave far away, but we are
We're very close
to Janet Cloos;
we're pretty close,
in our best clothes
with Janet Cloos!
It's nice to have a friend like Janet;
Even if you move to some other planet,
to Janet Cloos.
I feel close even without Cloos,
Don't know why - that's the way it goes;
Feel it tickling down in my toes,
'Cause she's got that certain quelque chose,
So look out, all of you Romeos,
You may be up for an overdose;
Though Madonna sings: Strike a pose,
I'll give my rose to Janet Cloos;
Now the song's coming to a close,
Just have time to propose a toast,
To propose a toast to the lovely host-
Happy birthday, Janet Cloos!
