Tomorrow will come and girl 
I can't wait it's our anniversary (echo) anniversary
The first thing I'll do is run straight to you it our anniversary (echo) anniversary

[Chorus]
It's our anniversary (echo) 
It's our anniversary, anniversary
It's our anniversary (echo)
It's our anniversary, made for you and me

And I've only made plans to hold your little hand 
It's our anniversary (echo) anniversary

The pleasure's all mine 'cause we have seen good times 
It's our anniversary Victoria 
Won't be no secret at the end of the day
It's our anniversary
(echo) anniversary 
A small cup of tea to you and me it's our anniversary

All I really want to say my darling today is a special day we call our 
Own so take me in your arms and hold me and tell me you love me 
And I'll be there for you

Do you know what today is 
Do you know what today is
It's our anniversary (it's our, it's our special day)
Anniversary
Do you know what today is 
It's our anniversary made for you and me

Today is a special day not just any day cause you can have everything 
You want your way 
Tell your supervisor you're leaving early today and 
I'm going to pay for the rest of your day

Do you know what today is it's our anniversary, anniversary
Do you know what today is it's our anniversary, anniversary

Today I have lots of fun stuff for you girl

Do you know what today is it's our anniversary 
Do you know what today is it's our anniversary, made for you and me

I know girl

It's our anniversary.

And I love you in a special way
I remember the first night
I remember the first day

Do you know what today is it's our anniversary (till fade)
