A song for Bettina

Here are the lyrics to Bettina’s 60th birthday song to the tune of “All Night Long” as Lionel Ritchie is her favourite singer. This video is in a slideshow sing-a-long format.

Well, my friends, the time has come

To celebrate and have some fun

A handsome maid once left her home

Warwick was where she roamed.

Everybody sang, everybody danced,

Sure she had the odd romance

They used to party, cinzano,more bubbly, get lager

Come on and sing along

They used to party, cinzano,more bubbly, get lager

Come on and sing along

(Be)Tina’s song

Joys life long

smiles-a- ton

Keeps us young

Packed her bags, the world to see,

everywhere’s the place to be

Life was good, wild and sweet

Let the music play on

Now that’s all gone, and your home is Hove,

You’ve made this place a treasure-trove

Still wants to party, now Merlot, more bubbly, Kaluha

Come on and sing her song

(Be)Tina’s song

Joy life long

smiles-a- ton

Our special one

When you get started, you can’t sit down

Come join the fun, there’s no ti-me to frown

so good at blowing our troubles away,

You can still party, the same old way

Tam bo li de say de moi ya
Hey Jambo Jumbo
Way to parti o we goin’
Oh, jambali
Tam bo li de say de moi ya
Yeah, Jambo, jumbo

Oh, O, O, O, yes
We’re going to have a party! (Yeah… ugh)

(Be)Tina’s song

Joy life long

smiles-a- ton

All night long

Everyone you meet,

You make it all a treat

All night long…
