“Story of a Girl”

My students wrote this as a birthday present for me! super creative!
They sang it to me and I started crying. So touched by their efforts! 🙂 Thanks, guys!

(To the tune of “Absolutely (Story of a Girl)” by Nine Days)

This is the story of a girl
Who tries to go and absorb the whole world
And while she always seems to be on the go
She needs to take a break to,
Celebrate! (*happy birthday!*)

How many days in a year?
She’s got so many roles that she always changing gears
Daughter, sister and Penn engineer
Making her promises –always so real!
As long as she keeps on striving,
(she’ll be) Growing through obstacles God throws her way
How many years disappear,
Before she steps back to savor her works?
Your song never ceases to inspire Sundays
And your cheer never runs in quite the same way
And you never seem to run out of things to say…

This is the story of a girl
Who tries to go and absorb the whole world
And while she always seems to be on the go
She needs to take a break to,
Celebrate! (*happy birthday!*)

So how does she make up for time?
She seems to be hopping day after day
How does she fill up her days?
Well you gotta first look at what her works say
She does things that make her happy
Fitting her rhythm and syncs with her needs
How will she find what she craves?
When she’s distracted by beer chips and meetings galore
Third culture kid with amazing smarts
And she’s filled with a joy that consumes her whole heart
So what the heck can we offer this birthday gal?

This is the story of a day
2X years (plus a week!), it is what we’ll say
Happy Birrr-thday, we hope you’ll stay
To enjoy this song we wrote you
With a smile
