Happy Birthday my old friend
It seems this horror show will never end
Any moment's your last breath
Here is to another day closer to death

The cake is on the table
And it is awfully bright
Cause there's so many candles on top
But you are so decrepit
Your chest is so tight
blow them out your lungs are gonna pop

You cannot complain each time you feel a pain
You have arthritis and gout
Cause when you start kvetchin'
Your teeth fall out
So have another cigarette, have another beer!
Raise your glass to one more year!

Happy Birthday my old friend
It seems this horror show will never end
Any moment's your last breath
Here is to another day closer to death

Your skin is so worn out and old
all over your body its saggin'
Especially loose is your old caboose
You're dragging behind you with your wagon

You're an alcoholic and you're blind and deaf
And you have Alzheimer's I bet
You're too old to remember and you're too drunk to forget
So have another cigarette, have another beer!
Raise your glass to one more year!


Happy Birthday my old friend
It seems this horror show will never end
Any moment's your last breath
Here is to another day closer to death

You're so old you smell like dust
Now your bones begin to rust
See that face it's full of wrinkles
So have another cigarette, have another beer!
Raise That chair to one more year!

Happy Birthday my old friend
It seems this horror show will never end
Any moment's your last breath
Here is to another day closer to death

Happy Birthday my old friend
It seems this horror show will never end
Any moment's your last breath
Here is to another day closer to your sweet death!
