Yellow, orange, pink and brown
On the seafront I am down.
I love the colours, I love the sea
I love my life just being me.
I am free to do what I want today,
Why? Because it is my birthday.
They gave me these balloons,
A little skip a little run
Up in the air I am having fun
If only I could fly
Up in the sky
I am so happy with my red balloons
Can you hear the sound of the tunes?
