Birthday tradition
delirium happy
It is now gone midnight. This means it is my birthday. And that means it's time for another of my stupid journal traditions.
Once a year we celebrate
With stupid hats and plastic plates
The fact that you were able to make
Another trip around the sun
And the whole clan gathers round
And gifts and laughter do abound
And we let out a joyful sound
And sing that stupid song

Happy birthday!
Now you're one year older!
Happy birthday!
Your life still isn't over!
Happy birthday!
You did not accomplish much
But you didn't die this year
I guess that's good enough

So let's drink to your fading health
And hope you don't remind yourself
The chance of finding fame and wealth
Decrease with every year
Does it feel like you're doing laps
And eating food and taking naps
And hoping that someday perhaps
Your life will hold some cheer

Happy birthday!
What have you done that matters?
Happy birthday!
You're starting to get fatter
Happy birthday!
It's downhill from now on
Try not to remind yourself
Your best years are all gone

If cryogenics were all free
Then you could live like Walt Disney
And live for all eternity
Inside a block of ice
But instead your time is set
This is the only life you get
And though it hasn't ended yet
Sometimes you wish it might

Happy birthday!
You wish you had more money
Happy birthday!
Your life's so sad it's funny
Happy birthday!
How much more can you take?
But your friends are hungry
So just cut the stupid cake

Happy birthday!
Happy birthday!
Happy birthday, dear...

Uh... happy birthday!

Happy birthday!! :o)

Tis an amusing song though not necesarily cheerful - which seems almost oxymoronic.

I like it, it's pretty appropriate; you young 'uns still look forward to birthdays ;-)

Oh dear, those worms really do sound arrogant. Happy bird day!

Happy birthday! Congratulations on making it through another year without dying!

I shall dedicate a round of the Birthday Dirge to you.

I just thought of you. Happy birthday.

Thank you. I think of you from time to time too. It's good to hear from you.

i'm glad it's your birthday because I'm glad you were born

Congratulations on making it through another revolution.
Do something today that makes you happy..

Happy Birthday, and if not, happy random other day near your birthday.


Happy birthday!

"Steve... Bob... Larry... Skippy, the bush kangaroo..."

Happy belated birthday!

When reading the lyrics, I was "hearing" the verses to the tune of "They're Coming to Take Me Away." Is that wrong?
