Happy Birthday to Missy Aida

What Would You Be?
By Dr. Seuss
If you’d never been born, well then what would you be?
You might be a fish?  Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!  Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag of hard green tomatoes!
Or worse than all that- why, you might be a WASN’T!
A WASN’T has no fun at all.  No, he doesn’t.
A WASN’T just isn’t.  He just isn’t present.
But you- you ARE YOU!  And now, isn’t that pleasant?
Today you are you!  That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Shout loud, “I am lucky to be what I am!
Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham!
Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am!  That’s a great thing to be!
If I say so myself, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!”

Happy Birthday to Missy Aida.

What Would You Be?

By Dr. Seuss

 

If you’d never been born, well then what would you be?

You might be a fish?  Or a toad in a tree!

You might be a doorknob!  Or three baked potatoes!

You might be a bag of hard green tomatoes!

Or worse than all that- why, you might be a WASN’T!

A WASN’T has no fun at all.  No, he doesn’t.

A WASN’T just isn’t.  He just isn’t present.

But you- you ARE YOU!  And now, isn’t that pleasant?

Today you are you!  That is truer than true!

There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

Shout loud, “I am lucky to be what I am!

Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham!

Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!

I am what I am!  That’s a great thing to be!

If I say so myself, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!”
