Some people might think that a birthday song that starts with the words “You’re gonna die” is inappropriately morbid. I, on the other hand, think that a realistic sense of our mortality leads to living a full, fruitful life. Wiser men than me have come to the same conclusion. (You know–Solomon in Ecclesiastes.) Whether you’re blowing out 6 candles on your cake or celebrating 75 years like my mother is today, sing this song and then get out there and live like you mean it!
