The Lyrics

Yeah, I had a birthday this month. But did I get what I really wanted -- U2 coming to my house to sing this parody to me? Nooooooo, I guess they think they're too GOOD to play birthday parties for random nobodies, or something. Prima Donnas.
You can't believe it's your birthday
You can't close your eyes and MAKE US GO AWAY
How old ---
-- Are you now, my fossil friend?
How old?
How ooooooooooold,
Father Time?
You could be a hundred and nine

Blow your candles til your face turns blue
Lots of cake here for the FIREMEN TOO
But you can’t eat ice cream at all
It makes you back up
Makes you BACK UP IN BATHROOM STALLS

Birthday, Happy Birthday
Birthday, Happy Birthday
Birthday, Happy Birthday (Birthday, Happy Birthday)
(That’s right, you’re old!)

And the party’s just begun
There’s a pinata, filled with Fiber One
You’re ancient as the pyramids
You make those old guys from “Cocoon” look like young kids

Birthday, Happy Birthday
Birthday, Happy Birthday

How long---
Til you’re in a power chair?
How long?
How looooooooong…..
Til you ride?
You shall get a scooter to riiiiiide
You’ll riiiiiiiide

Birthday, Happy Birthday (you riiide)
Birthday, Happy Birthday (you riiide)

***Clip the hairs from your ears***
***Snip your hairs away***
***Oh, clip ear hairs away***
And trim nose hairs away (Birthday, Happy Birthday)
Just trim those fuzzy ears (Birthday, Happy Birthday)

(Birthday, Happy Birthday) Birthday, Happy Birthday
(Birthday, Happy Birthday) Birthday, Happy Birthday
(You’re still really old!)

Open presents, awesome stuff
For when you’ve fallen, and you CAN’T GET UP
At your age fun’s in short supply
So live it up; bet toMORROW YOU’LL DIE

You say your life has just begun (Birthday, Happy Birthday)
Cause you are only forty-one (Birthday, Happy Birthday)
On:
Birthday, Happy Birthday
Birthday, Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Claude!!! (So I take it you've turned 41?) This was pretty great to a pretty great song as well. I really liked the line: "So live it up; bet toMORROW YOU’LL DIE".

U2 once blocked the entire Kansas City downtown loop during rush hour traffic to film a video. Paid a whole $35 for permission. Thousands late for work, extra fuel costs, etc. Never even showed the thing on KC TV. We probably wouldn't have appreciated it anyway. The video featured beat writer William Burroughs. It was called "Last Night on Earth". When the filming was finished, Burroughs dropped dead. I remember "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" from the movie. Get a bloody Steadicam. Happy birthday to someone who liked my song.

Still that makes you younger than some of the mail you deliver, am I right? ;-)

(SOTM) I'm seriously left speechless, this is AWESOME. Great OS, great topic...just brilliant. 555 for you!

Getting a bit confused for a minute.. security code is saying "322", and I'm thinking "that's not what I voted"... brain fade..

I'd love to hear this recorded - it'd make a great change from the usual birthday dirge :-)

(SOTM) Very cute parody idea Claude, fun, though I guess I was looking for slightly bigger laughs, but still very good parody, and good idea for this particular OS
Invisible Boy - May 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Great idea and write, Claude. Old-folk bashing never gets old.
I liked the "fallen/can't get up" gag.
Arwen - May 31, 2009 - Report this comment
SOTM...very VERY funny, Claude. I loved the bathroom stalls and the Fiber One pinata. I have to say, though, for the record...there has been more than one occasion that I wished I'd had one of those scooters. ; )

SOTM: I was also going to say that Fiber One pinata made me laugh. This might have had extra meaning for me because my 38th birthday was last Wednesday (and Arwen wished me a happy birthday on Friday, prolonging the celebration)
Glen S - May 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Many great lines, including 'Fiber one' and 'can't get up'. Great take on a song I'd be clueless with. Awesome as always Claude.
