Lyrics

I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday 'Cause you're evil And you lie And if you should die I may feel slightly sad But I won't cry

Loved and lost And some may say When usually it's nothing Surely you're happy It should be this way I say no, I'm gonna kill my dog May the lines sag, the lines sag heavy and deep tonight

I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday 'Cause you're evil And you lie And if you should die I may feel slightly sad But I won't cry

Loved and lost And some may say When usually it's nothing Surely you're happy It should be this way I said no And then I shot myself So, drink, drink, drink And be ill tonight

From the one you left behind From the one you left behind From the one you left behind From the one you left behind Behind Behind Behind Behind Behind Behind Oh, unhappy birthday Behind Behind Behind
