"We Are The Lucky Ones"


Song Lyrics

Verse 1
She was born August 22nd 1931
It was the year the Star Spangled Banner would be done
Grew up with a mother and father who raised her well
With 5 older brothers who gave her plenty of hell

She met Dad on Wildwood, and knew that he was the one
He put stones on the sidewalk to get it done
They had 60 years of pure love and fun
And even though he's gone, she still shines bright as the sun

She is GMA, GG, Gram, and Baba
And holds us together so tight
She's taught us all to be kind and true
She's the difference in all of our lives

Chorus
We don’t say it enough
Just to be with you
I know we are the lucky ones
Here’s what we’re gonna do
Today we celebrate 85 years of you
Today we celebrate 85 years of you

Verse 2
The first thing people say
Is that you’ve got a kind heart
And how you love to entertain,
With melon balls at the summer party

We can’t get enough
Of Saturdays at the BZB
Or the weeknights eating your world famous
Spaghetti and baked beans

Mom, I hope you know what you mean to all of us
crafting with Linda & Lisa,
To cooking with Steve and poker nights with Karen
Oh how the memories are glaring’

Chorus 
We don’t say it enough
Just to be with you
I know we are the lucky ones
Here’s what we’re gonna do
Today we celebrate 85 years of you
Today we celebrate 85 years of you

Verse 3
If we watch golf
We know that you don’t like Mickelson
You’ll send him a big zap
And pray that the ball doesn’t make it in

Kitty wanted us to tell you
Right here in this song
That he’s grateful for the surgeries
That fixed all the wrongs

I hope you know what you mean
To all twenty-six of us, and one on the way
The memories made
Are higher than any straight flush

Chorus
Though we don’t say it enough
just to be with you
I know we are the lucky ones
Here’s what we’re gonna do
Today we celebrate 85 years

And though we don’t say it enough
Just to be with you
I know we are the lucky ones
Here’s what we’re gonna do
today we celebrate 85 years of you
