Song Description

This song opens with a slow-paced, jazzy acoustic version of the tune. It then jumps into an old-time rock and roll song, in which the singer wishes a happy day to a loving couple, while contemplating suicide.

Story Behind the Song

I was pretty lonely on Valentine's Day in 1986, and this song was the result.

Lyrics

CHORUS 1
Happy Valentine's Day
I wish you so much good cheer
Even though I haven't had a date
In over a year

VERSE 1
Oh, I wish a happy day to you
and that girl by your side
and while the two of you go coochie-coo
I'll be contemplating suicide

CHORUS 2
Take the razor blades away
and the pistol I keep under my bed
and if I can't find my sleeping pills
I'll use my toothbrush instead

VERSE 2
and with it I will gouge my eyes
and I'll probably bleed to death
or at the very least
I'll come down with a pretty bad case of bad breath
"cause my toothbrush will be broken, 2-3-4..."

CHORUS 3
Happy Valentine's Day
I'm sorry for this sad display
I'll keep these horrid thoughts at bay
until next Valentine's... Happy Valentine's... "2-3-4..."

CHORUS 4
Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's, Happy Valentine's, Happy Valentine's Day
