  • Lyrics:   I kicked the can across the yard But that’s another story How dare it rain today On your birthday party It was stiller than a winter day Now it’s subtle as a wrecking train As lonely as this God-damned space Waiting for it to get started What to get for you I wish that I was cool And I wish I had a million dollars, too But, I guess until I turn that way I’ll just say Happy Birthday to you Happy Birthday to you Paper plates will catch the wind Blowing off the T A B L E Plastic spoons and sporks Watch them sail As the day gets started A box of Pandora’s things Or the world’s largest ball of string But I can’t think of anything To get you for this party What to get for you I wish that I was cool And I wish I had a million dollars, too I guess until I turn that way I will say Happy Birthday to you Happy Birthday to you Time fades like pencil sketches All these years Your birthday is here Buying pieces of the moon Or a first edition Dr. Seuss Or a big vanilla ice cream scoop Bring it to the party What to get for you I wish that I was cool And I wish I had a million dollars, too Because then there’s more That I could bring But I’ll just say Happy Birthday to you Happy Birthday to you
