Hoist the balloons for the month of June

Month that you are those near and far

Attend celebrations as countless as stars

Sailing through birthdays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, reunions

From the first to the 30th

We attend each event

Purchase gifts galore

So there’s ample delight

Such a splendid occasion is June

What a sight!
