Happy Birthday
Another orbit ‘round the sun
Happy Birthday
I hope you’re having lots of fun

Well, I remember when you were a teenager (a groovy lunatic)
I see that nothing has changed
Happy birthday you made it and you’re still deranged

Happy Birthday
You’re closer to the exit door
Happy Birthday
A little wiser than the year before

Well, if I should depart from here (leave this mortal coil)
Before I have the chance to say “bye”…
Happy Birthday
Those wrinkles do not lie

It seems the time goes by much faster the older we get
The memories get dimmer along with the regrets
It’s easier to let things go
Just blow out the candles

Some say we’re just a program running through a trillion motions
that make up this thing we call life

But it’s your Birthday - who cares?
I’m glad that you’re alive (that’s all that matters)
Happy Birthday
Your new year has arrived and I love ya
