Lyrics



Words and music by Michelle Malone

On this day a miracle took place
you were born perfectly loved ad adored
Your mother labored for 22 hours
Before you decided to come out and join the world
And I just want to say

I’m so glad, I’m so glad, I’m so glad you were born
I’m so glad, I’m so glad, I’m so glad you were born

Your father cried crocodile tears of joy
When the doctor announced, “It’s not a boy!”
And your big sister gave out bubble gum cigars
she’d later terrorize you with her saxophone and guitar
your parents raised you to be an outstanding individual

I’m so glad, I’m so glad, I’m so glad you were born
I’m so glad, I’m so glad, I’m so glad you were born

But then you became a teenager - you gave your parents hell
You went off to college where you'd eventually become
Kind, smart, thoughtful, talented, witty and pretty swell

I’m so glad, I’m so glad, I’m so glad you were born
I’m so glad, I’m so glad, I’m so glad you were born
