What's that heavy breathing
Is it passion for my sake?
No......you're only panting
At all the candles on your cake
I thought perhaps your ardour
Had discovered a new zest
But you sit there ...just wheezing
In your braces and string vest
Perhaps the lust will materialise
On some far and distant date
In the meantime...enjoy your birthday
If you have the 'puff' to celebrate!
