Happy 30th Birthday Jamie!
Hey, a couple of kids, just a couple of kids
Step back, record that, look what he did
Set fire to the wick, put us back on the grid
Flames ready, and were just about to do it again.
Aim steady, it’s about to begin,
A bit messy, all the things I’ve been tryin to squeeze in
A bit heavy, everything I wanna say to my friend,
Make it deadly with precision long before I hit send.
Now think back, remember the teens
demolish the snacks, to memories like these
A whole bag of chips under a heap of cheese
Swiss roll, nutter butter, smashing little debbies
Movie night, whats on the tube
Half baked, fear and loathing, or dazed and confused
Oh wait, here’s a geriatric lady named sue.
No sleep, wide awake, Jamie what do we do?
Up late, play some video games
Kick a lot of ass, keep a long list of names
You only get three letters in the hall of fame
Same initials still posted, tho the game has changed.
Gate keeper of the leader board JTP
Vacate first place give it up for DAD
Dump out the blocks, learn the ABCs
Count on your fingers, it goes 123
Safety first, restore peace of mind.
Hide the sharp and pointies, keep em hidden way up high.
Gate the stairs, pad the corners,lock up the cupboards
Now wrap your head around these new acceptable cuss words
Darn, dookie, dang, ding dong, dingaling
fart knocker, fiddlesticks, zoinks, fudge, flippin, zing
crikey, criminy, Blimey, Balderdash,
Jeepers creepers, sufferin succotash
Jackwagon, dagnabbit, thingamabob,
Oh snap, bob saget, caca, meecrob
Shibby, shiz, wizz, cinnamon, sugar, shucks
Finish this biz synonyms Nuckin Futs!
Couple of minions, pump premium gas
Double the villains, roll out in a flash
Tumble and spillin, burnouts in the grass
snuggle and chillin, out funning your ass
Take a look down, tell me what do you see?
Better looking versions of the Dr’s Mini-Me?
Some apples that didn’t fall far from the tree?
Couple of kids test the limits of your sanity?
Full of opportunity Who will they grow up to be?
Engineers? Teachers? Artists? Designers?
Healthcare physicians or fire truck drivers?
Animal trainers, shipwreck scuba divers?
A particular question I tend to wonder
How to guide the youth, and help them discover
How to find themselves and how to uncover
Personalities complimenting each other.
Curious little girl with her protective big brother.
alternating stride blazing trails with each other
Now they’re Growing up stronger, wiser and tougher,
promising futures await Piper and Tucker
when ya bare feet dance on a bed of hot coals
Ya feel the heat rise without burning ya toes
Fire hardened heels pioneer less traveled roads.
Equipped with hands prepared to carry the load
Take turns handling the sword and the stone
A dynamic combination, when opposed they hone
the razor sharp edge that fights for their souls
dreams, aspirations, and life long goals.
