lyrics

There's hundreds of occasions I like to celebrate
Like my birthday or a good friend postin' bail
But familial or legal from the bar to the cathedral
They all require the same things to prevail

It takes courage when the goings gettin' tough
Grace n' humor when y'ain't sure which way's up
Yes it takes some perseverance when sometimes by all appearance
Well it looks like you might be pretty much outta' luck

Happy anniversary
You pulled it off so perfectly
I hope you'll have a darn good time on purposely
Just watch out for that Retrograde of Mercury
Oh that ain't no joke

Now I realize I seem quite empty handed
I know I brought no present, card or cake
But even good ol' Hallmark couldn't land it in the ballpark
Describin' how much you got what it takes

So Happy Anniversary how long's it been
A very happy anniverary I say again
From a moment to a decade you deserve a glass o' champagne
Hip hip hooray here's to you my friend

Happy anniversary
You pulled it off so perfectly
I hope you'll have a darn good time on purposely
Just watch out for that Retrograde of Mercury
Watch out for that Retrograde of Mercury
