For Bert, on his birthday.


Today’s the Day of Bert, hooray!
The Day of Bert is here!
It’s time to don your nicest hat
And sparkliest brassiere.
It’s time to eat a piece of cake
And drink some posh champagne;
To make a toast for Maverick’s sake;
To go a bit insane.
To shout! To sing! To laugh! To dance!
To use a silly voice;
To eagerly remove your pants
And gleefully rejoice.
This special and auspicious date
Marks quite a special birth,
So HAPPY BERT DAY to a mate
Who brightens up the Earth.
