Ivy, you’re a rose of a lady

Custom songs about birthdays provide us with a lot of great experiences. We love learning about the people who are having birthdays, and also getting to know the clients that commission the songs. Every birthday is special to us, but certainly all will agree that the one we are about to describe is extra special.

Ivy turned 102 last year and Custom Serenade was lucky enough to play a part in the celebration by writing and recording a song about her. She’s a fascinating woman with a keen sense of humor, a sweet tooth, and a lot of great stories to tell. The song itself is one that avoids specific genres and focuses on an overall nice feel and melody that attempt to reflect the positive outlook of Ivy herself. We hope you enjoy Ivy’s song, and be sure to check out the lyrics as well!


IVY

Chorus 1:
Ivy, you’re a rose of a lady
With oh so many stories to tell
Of the time you spent in Cornwall and Kent
And other tales from your endless well

If anybody asks you’ll say that life is wonderful
You always see the glass as half full
Sweeter than millionaires shortbread
You don’t mind a cheeky cider every now and then

Chorus 2:
Cinders, We’re so lucky you’ve been here
For more than one hundred years
With a smile so wide and a heart so grand
It’s lovely to hear you laugh

Hear the black bird sing so beautifully
Think about your wonderful family
Maybe get hooked on an audio book
Or lose yourself in your memories

Chorus 1

You’re a Mother and a Granny
Always go to church on Sunday
You’re a member of the Women’s Institute
No crossword is too cryptic
You love watching cricket
And you’ve got a real sweet tooth

But there is a mystery,
Befuddling and baffling
How have you lived over a hundred years
Without ever eating your greens

Chorus 2

Around the Car Park take Trixie for a trip
Feel the soft breeze and think about Pip
Going to the port, oh the late night drives
Waiting for Francis to arrive

Chorus 1

You’re positive and generous
Known for your sense of humor and fun
Some call you Cinders others call you M
Everywhere you go, you make new friends

Chorus 2 and 1
