Carey Gustafson’s Birthday Song

Monday, October 18th, 2010

This past Saturday night, Emily, Adam Pierce and I got together and recorded a song in honor of (Emily’s sister and Adam’s girlfriend) Carey’s birthday. The lyrics were solicited from friends via text message, and then we put them to a Georgio Moroder-style disco beat, since that’s Carey’s favorite. A night well spent!

“It’s Carey’s Birthday Tonight” by Carey’s Pals

Here are the lyrics as they originally arrived via text:

J.B. Rodgers: Carey is my sister and I love her to the core. I’m proud to be her brother J.

Lisa Rodgers: I love my big sister

Nathaniel F. Burgundy IV: Carey, Carey where you going to

Ellen Sawyer: Ca-are-are-are-arey nay-yay-bee, carey baby (to tune of sherry by f valli)

Emily Gustafson:
1) Carey is the only one who could find at a thrift store a shirt that says: “It behooves you to groove when you move to improve” ……….and give it to a friend
2) With care, with care, handle everything with Care. Send your kids to Day Care in a Care package. Care, Care, carry everything with Care, carry everything like Care!

Nicole Corfield:
1) Her eyes sparkle brighter than the glass she cuts
2) Just one glance can cure anyone’s blues
3) When she walks in the room my heart goes boom
4) Everyone wants to be near her

Alissa Lincoln: Oh la la it’s Carey’s birthday tonight, libra’s unite, and let’s celebrate right!
