A Song for Steve

Here are the lyrics to Steve’s 60th birthday song to the tune of “Drive By ” by Train. This video is in a slideshow sing-a-long format.

Steve progresses from a Birmingham lad destined to work in a local factory to a job in pharmaceuticals but later enrolled to take a degree, became very fit, and married Elly. He has worked as a charity educator which included dressing up as a mascot for the Albion. All this and a firm love for Jane Austin, handy as a conversation piece with his school mini bus passengers. A cabin added to the family home would suit as an Air BnB too

Our dear young Steve was a Brummy man,

Told to work as a factory hand

“That’s ok for the likes of you”,

But our Steve took a different view so

He moved down to Worthing town

Now Beechams was the best around!

A teccy job is what he then found!

Oh that’s not enough, he couldn’t live it up

Wanted an “ology” and with that knowledge he

Went off to Brighton town and Sussex Uni found

To be the best that he could be

Happy Birthday, Steve

We cannot believe

You were born in 19 dum-dee-dum

Just a shy guy

Never known a bloke like

You to make us laugh and cry

Got your six pack

Now it’s time to sit back

Yes we’re only joking

You’re our racing road king

You mean a lot to

Everyone around you

As you go flying by!!

You’re our meditation man

Yoga plus vegetarian

Just beware the colon cleanse

Pee all night and pee all day.

Finally summed up the welly,

Got around to asking Elly.

“Built our house, so please say I do..”

From his Segal’s home to the Seagulls dome

He thought he’d signed up but he had to line up

In Gully’s uniform,  his duties to perform

Got those smokers to reform

Happy Birthday, Steve

We cannot believe

You were born in 19 dum-dee-dum

Just a shy guy

Never known a bloke like

You to make us laugh and cry

Got his six-pack

Now it’s time to sit back

Yes we’re only joking

You’re our racing road king

You mean a lot to

Everyone around you

As you go flying by!!

Another world can be unfurled

Jane Austen’s his real pearl and just as well

Got plenty now to say to those clever Roedean girls!

Live in their house on Seasaw Way

Built a cabin for the girls to play

It’s a great opportunity

Let it out, Air BnB

Happy Birthday, Steve

We cannot believe

You were born in 19 dum-dee-dum

Just a shy guy

Never known a bloke like

You to make us laugh and cry

Got your six-pack

Now it’s time to sit back

Yes we’re only joking

You’re our racing road king

You mean a lot to

Everyone around you

As you go flying by!!
