What to get for your Birthday

I decided at no small expense
To buy us a brand new fence.
And since we like our clothes clean,
We got a new washing machine.

We want to show Jerry new places
So I’m sending you both to Las Vegas.
Susan asked, and I could not refuse,
You’ll soon be on a girls’ cruise.

I know you don’t care for foolery
And you said not to buy any jewelry.
For we’ve finally reached maturity
We’re now eligible for social security.

But for your birthday, forgive me honey,
It seems I’ve run out of money.
Since your birthday I don’t want to miss,
I’ll give you a big birthday kiss!
