For my beautiful friend, Sarah, in celebration of your 40th birthday! (with apologies to Bobby McFerrin)

Here’s a little blog I wrote
You might want to learn these words by rote
Don’t worry – you’re forty!
When we were twenty we had no trouble
Now we older, our age is double
Don’t worry, you’re forty!

Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(You’re forty!)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(You’re forty!)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry, you’re forty!)

Aches come when you lay your head
Somebody needs to change your bed
Don’t worry, you’re forty!
No more can you stay out late
Late nights now they irritate
Don’t worry, you’re forty!
(Look at me I am forty!)

Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Be forty!)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
Here I give you my phone number
Now you forty call me, I make you happy
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(You’re forty!)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh

Don’t got to dash, you take a while
Take your time, life will make you smile
And don’t worry – you’re forty!
‘Cause now you’re forty
Your face will shine
‘Cause you have lived all this time
So don’t worry, you’re forty!
Don’t worry, you’re forty now!

Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(You’re forty!)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
Don’t worry, you’re forty!
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(You’re forty!)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
Don’t worry – you’re forty!
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry sweetie, be happy)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
(Put a smile on your face, don’t bring everybody down)
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(It will soon pass, celebrate it)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
Don’t worry, you’re forty!
I’m not worried, you’re forty!
