Happy Birthday, Baby Carrie—Debbie Reynolds
Look who is one! O star-produced
Princess Carrie, you are introduced
So blithe and bonnie, good and gay,
Being born on the Sabbath day!!
Kindly fairies, your next of kin,
Charm the crib that you sleep in,
While pink as rose and white as snow
One by one your beauties show.
Wonderful was the shining noon
When you arrived (a trifle soon)
To make us millions of fan-friends glad
For your dancing mother and singing dad
Our whole world echoes any time
Your dad lulls you with notes and rhyme;
And we are happy to know you prize
Your mother’s daily rock-a-byes.
Princess Carrie, one day you—
Now one—will toddle on to two,
First steps, new teeth, an upset tum
Making all around you hum.
(And one year, when you’re grown and free,
You’ll meet your one and, too, be three!)
So, coo to you, now, birthday baby,
We love you and don’t mean maybe!!
It is a quote. PHOTOPLAY MAGAZINE NOVEMBER 1957
