  • All my friends are jealous
    Because I have a niece like you.
    They are envious that I am
    Your aunt, that I'm one of those lucky few

    With a lovely young woman,
    Who gets to share her life
    With a niece who is so much fun.

    So let's celebrate, scream, and shout.
    Happy birthday.
  • What birthday gift should I give
    To my gorgeous niece
    Who is turning a year older,
    And whom I want to please?

    Help in finding a man whom she could call hers.
    Happy birthday.

  • A niece is a permanent part
    Of her aunt's heart.
    A niece's photo is a permanent fixture
    In her aunt's living room, like the furniture.

    In her aunt's life, as she is the cure to desolation.
    Happy birthday to my niece.
  • Aunts wouldn't love being aunts
    If they didn't have nieces like you.
    There is a reason why they cherish
    Their bonds with their nieces so true.
    Whenever they want,
    They can become their nieces' mothers or friends,
    And help their nieces pass through
    Life's rough patches or unexpected bends.
    Whenever they want,
    They can switch to being aunts, too.
    That is why I love being an aunt
    To a wonderful niece like you.
    Happy birthday.

    Was always loving and true,
    But it became stronger
    After they had you.
    All this while I have
    Loved you as much as my own child.
    I will always cherish memories
    Of times we cried and smiled.
    Happy birthday.
