The Lyrics

Main disclaimer: although it is my daughter's birthday today, and that is what inspired me to write a birthday parody, this one has no relation to real life whatsoever. It's just that annoyed ranty parodies are so much easier to write (and funnier) than happy, cheerful ones. I was originally planning to write a happy "happy birthday" sort of parody, it kind of came out this way istead.
So it's your birthday
I hope you have fun
Another year older
Feels good when you're young
I know it's your birthday
You told me before
And you're getting older
By having one more

A very happy birthday
Age up by one year
You open your presents
With happy, good cheer

You say it's your birthday (you've got older)
First time that was sweet (but you said that)
You've already said this (you've got older)
No need to repeat (no)
I know it's your birthday (you've got older)
I know that you think (yes, you've told me)
It needs repetition (you've got older)
But it drives me to drink (glug)

A very happy birthday
You've got lots of stuff
You already showed me
Enough is enough

I know it's your birthday (you've got older)
If you don't stop your drone (you're still droning)
You're spending the next one (you've got older)
All on your own (yeah)
Shut up about birthdays (you've got older)
You might think they're fun (not when my age)
I've had way too many (you've got older)
I'm old and you're young (old)

YES, I KNOW IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY
Hope I don't sound too rough
When I snap and shout at you:
JUST SHUT THE **** UP!

You've got older
Don't repeat it
You've got older
Now...
