Track Name: Jon Peterson
well there's moments in life you see
when we are changed forever
in the blinking of an eye
and everything seems so much better
for me that moment came
41 years ago today, February 28th
for on that fateful day
and through some intolerable pain for his mother
his parents joy did resound
once all the pain was gone
and a celebration went all through town
at the arrival of Jon Peterson

Jon Peterson is here
let the whole world hear
c'mon and sing it with me now
for before we were without him
but now he is among us
so let's join in happy chorus
celebrate the boy before us, Jon Peterson

well that boy grew into a man
at least that's what most folks believe
and he took himself a bride
one in whom he could confide
and by confide, I mean they had relations
and they made themselves some chillens
and now he's got his hands full
professoring stuff at some school which may seem kinda dull
but dullness ain't in his vocabulary
and neither is the word "conglamarrary" cause it's not a word
and even now folks say
you can still hear the echoes of celebration that started 41 years ago today

Jon Peterson is here
let the whole world hear
c'mon and sing it with me now
for before we were without him
but now he is among us
so let's join in happy chorus
celebrate the man before us, Jon Peterson
Jon Peterson is here
let the whole world hear
sing out one joyful song
celebrate you know Jon Peterson
Track Name: Double-o-Rees
among all numbers, 40 seems insignificant
it takes on more meaning, when on a scale from birth to death
if you were staring down the barrel of age 40
would you surrender and fall down to your knees
or take it like a man, just like the fabled

double-o-Rees
he's turning 40
the double-o-Rees
he's got a license to preach

the nice thing about pastors is
they never get "put out to pasture", so to speak
except that's confusing because they're always supposed to be out there shepherding
when he's using his super spy golf swing you know
many a head is turned
and always remember he prefers his communion juice
shaken, not stirred

he's turning 40
the double-o-Rees
he's got a license to preach

Track Name: the slow boatman - Les DavidJensen
I dreamed a dream in times gone by
That one day life, would be worth living
Then one came forth from stormy skies
In the beak of a stork, we had been given
A chiseled form of masculine clay
But with a love of musicals within him
Our dreams have all now been fulfilled
So what's the use of dreams anymore, they're pointless

Thanks to the birth of David Jensen
Life is now worth the living
A friend in need is a friend indeed
And trust me, he is always in need

So come and dream the dream with me
Get to know the man who's only weakness
Is to be moist in chilly air
Boy that sounds pathetic when I sing it

Thanks to the birth of David Jensen
Life is now worth the living
But no, seriously, he's a heck of a guy
And I'm a better man for knowing him

I firmly believe from the bottom of my heart
That if the world knew him
There would be no more
Les Miserables
Track Name: the slow boatman - C-Sauce
There is a man who this great day has turned 40 years old
Let's raise a glass and drink a pint he'd want us to I'm told
His lineage may seem fair game to mock and taunt and prod
But my dear friends you bite your tongues, he's a good chap after all

C-Sauce, it's your birthday
Which means you're that much closer to eternity
40 is like a steamroller
The last 39 years it's rolling steady toward ya
But you won't flatten like a pancake
Not like the chocolate chip one's you make each and every saturday

It's your birthday, happy birthday
It's your birthday, happy birthday

Maybe now that you're 40 your brain will slow down
And help the rest of us stop feeling like a bunch of circus clowns
It's amazing how each code and regulation
Is locked inside your cranium for a rainy day vacation
It makes me want to give a standing ovation
Except when you point out how I break them on occasion (ssshhh)

It's your birthday, happy birthday
It's your birthday, happy birthday
It's your birthday, happy birthday
It's your birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday
