Years and smiles, tears and miles, the numbers keep on rising
Can’t stop time, nor would I, so if you’re set on surprising
I don’t need a thing in this world now
And I’m starting a thing of my own anyhow
A tradition, a simple tradition
That means the most to me, and I hope you agree.
A kiss, a kiss, a kiss, of any kind
A kiss, a kiss, a little peck, or one that’s bound to blow my mind
On the top of the head like for a kid
On the nose, or the elbow or fingertip
On the brow or the cheek with no embrace
Or if you like, right on the lower third of my face
Candles flare, laughter shared, just keep the music going.
Here and gone, life moves on, and the answers keep on blowing.
But I don’t need a thing in this world now
I’ve got everything that I need anyhow
But tradition, a happy tradition
It’s simple and it’s free, ready anytime you please
