I Heard It's Your Birthday

i heard it's your birthday

happy birthday to you

is it a sprightly sweet sixteen

or a grizzled ninety-two?

is the best yet to come?

or is what's come the best it gets?

for your birthday

i hope you have no regrets

i heard it's your birthday

how you feel?

excited that you're older

or just relieved you're still here?

you might be gone tomorrow

all your achievements swept away

oh but hey

least it's your birthday today

take all there is
drink it all down
feel all you can
life unbound
stone turns to ash
steel turns to rust
stars die and fall
man turns to dust

i heard it's your birthday

is that right?

dont keep it a secret

because you know thats not nice

dont hide behind fake modesty

it's the perfect time to throw a big party

it's your birthday!

let's have some fun tonight

i heard it's your birthday

don't be sore

most people get about eighty

but most people would like more

that's not a lot to spent

but it's better not to dwell

it's your birthday

you'd better spend it well

reddest blood
darkest night
softest kiss
harshest light
stone turns to ash
steel turns to rust
stars die and fall
man turns to dust

i heard it's your birthday
is it gonna come again?
see your parents, bug your kids

just get wasted with your friends
grab a bottle and pass it round
light a match and burn this bastard down
we'll do whatever you say 'cause
it's your birthday tonight!
