The birthday party was amazing! I can’t wait to tell you all about it. I wish you could have all come. Everything was perfect.
Today, I want to share the song Margaret and her friend Audrey wrote and sung for our mother. It was a smashing hit!
Audrey’s son, Adam, played the song to the tune of the hit T.V. show “All in the Family”.
Gracie’s Birthday Song
(Sung to “All in the Family” theme)
Our Gracie’s sweet as she can be,
Came from a big family,
Born back on the 12th of May,
This is her day.
Grew up with a rowdy crew,
Bernie, Ed and Carolyn too,
Don’t forget there’s Bob and Ray and Ann an Oh! Mary Lou.
From Boston she moved to the South,
Some thought she had a big ol’ mouth,
Talking about politics,
Who could you blame?
Married her Prince and it was grand
They built Coachwood’s Graceland,
Married 58 swell years,
She was his Dear.
She danced and sang out in the rain,
Til she got some sharp knee pain,
She headed for the mystery books,
And she CAN cook!
Her Carolina cake with fudge icing,
Has us running and a slicing,
She says, “Who cares how it taste!?”
“But don’t set that table in haste!!”
Takes her grandkids on those special flings,
And she sure likes pretty things,
Can solve your almost anything,
She’s generous too.
Loves to garden, travel, go to Mass
Not much into fishing bass
Chocolate, yes and movies too
This gals no fool
Loves her kids and grandkids too,
But mess with her and she’ll get you,
Love this lady oh so much; we called her cuz Georgia up.
Turning 80 ain’t so bad.
Can’t wait til 100’s had,
Life with Gracie’s always rad,
THIS IS HER DAY!!
Song written and Sung by: Margaret Hoverath and Audrey Mosley.
