Song Description

A playfully sarcastic birthday song for people who are less than happy about the whole aging thing.

Story Behind the Song

After being asked for the third consecutive gig to play "Happy Birthday" for someone in the audience -- a real set-killer -- I realized that there are very few options out there in the birthday genre, and none that I knew of that could be identified with by the huge demographic who don't LIKE having birthdays. So I sought to fill that void.

Lyrics

Here it comes
That awful day again
A day of misery, a day of strife
A day that
Once was your favorite
Is now a yearly audit of your worthless life, well
Another party
Another candle
Another chance to think about how last year stunk
And
It's your turn to provide your useless friends a reason to get drunk

It's your birthday
Happy happy birthday
Another party crasher
With no presents to give
Yeah
It's your birthday
Happy freaking birthday
Another year older and
One day less to live

If you try
You might remember
When you thought your birthday was so much fun
It seems it all went downhill
From the day you turned 21
cuz
No more Hot Wheels
No more Barbies
Your tastes outgrew your earning ability
and
It's now this awkward drunken celebration of mortality

Happy birthday
Happy happy birthday
Another party crasher
With no presents to give
Yeah
It's your birthday
Happy freaking birthday
Another year older and
One day less to live

A few more pounds and
A few more wrinkles
But, hey, a few more dollars
In your bank account
So
Don't bother adding up the years
Because the first 18 don't count

Happy birthday
Happy happy birthday
You got a lot of candles
So take a deep breath
Yeah
Happy birthday
Happy freaking birthday
Raise your glass to
Another year of cheating death

Happy birthday, Happy happy birthday
Yeah
Happy birthday, Happy happy birthday
Alright
Happy birthday, Happy freaking birthday
You're gonna live forever
So party down tonight
