Birthday Wishes for underpope

Written By: cahwyguy - Sat Dec 31, 2005 @ 6:57 am PDT

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John, and starts singing the Birthday Cake Polka for underpope:

Put another candle on my birthday cake
We’re gonna bake a birthday cake
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I’m another year old today

I’m gonna have a party with my birthday cake
Come on and take some birthday cake
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I’m another year old today

    We’ll have some pie and sandwiches
And chocolate ice cream too
We’ll sing and play the day away
And one more thing I’m gonna do

I’ll blow out the candles on my birthday cake
And when I do, a wish I’ll make
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I’m another year old today

Happy Birthday to You
You’re another year old today.

Birthday Wishes for ellipticcurve

Written By: cahwyguy - Thu Dec 08, 2005 @ 5:10 am PDT

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and join Sheriff John in singing the Birthday Cake Polka for ellipticcurve… but wait… the Sheriff’s not on today. Instead, we have a funny looking group of guys, and they are singing:

Once a year we celebrate
With stupid hats and plastic plates
The fact that you were able to make
Another trip around the sun

And the whole clan gathers round
And gifts and laughter do abound
And we let out a joyful sound
And sing that stupid song

Happy birthday!
Now you’re one year older!
Happy birthday!
Your life still isn’t over!
Happy birthday!
You did not accomplish much
But you didn’t die this year
I guess that’s good enough

So let’s drink to your fading health
And hope you don’t remind yourself
The chance of finding fame and wealth
Decrease with every year

Does it feel like you’re doing laps
And eating food and taking naps
And hoping that someday perhaps
Your life will hold some cheer

Happy birthday!
What have you done that matters?
Happy birthday!
You’re starting to get fatter
Happy birthday!
It’s downhill from now on
Try not to remind yourself
Your best years are all gone

If cryogenics were all free
Then you could live like Walt Disney
And live for all eternity
Inside a block of ice

But instead your time is set
This is the only life you get
And though it hasn’t ended yet
Sometimes you wish it might

Happy birthday!
You wish you had more money
Happy birthday!
Your life’s so sad it’s funny
Happy birthday!
How much more can you take?
But your friends are hungry
So just cut the stupid cake

I must add: For those of you who have never met ellipticcurve (Nicole), you’re missing something. She came into our life around 3 years ago, and very quickly became a part of our family. She’s a work colleague, a good friend, an older sister to our daughter, and just a really neat person. Her interests are congruent to ours, and we just enjoy being around her. I think every couple develops one or two truly close friendships that remain throughout their lives, that form the extended family that you choose to be with, as opposed to your real family (who you must be with). With us, ixixlix and her family are one, and ellipticcurve is the other. So, although many birthday wishes here on LiveJournal are proforma, I want the world to know that this one is especially really heartfelt.

Birthday Wishes for aliza250

Written By: cahwyguy - Sat Nov 19, 2005 @ 6:45 am PDT

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform, wearing a Viking hat (horns and all), strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John, and says:

I know you’re wondering what happened to my sharp lawman’s cowboy hat. We’ll, in honor of today’s song, I’ve decided to wear a different hat. I’ve also asked the Volga Boatmen to accompany me on this song. This is going out to you, aliza250.

He then clears his throat, takes out his guitar, plucks an “A” note, and then starts singing:

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Now you’ve aged another year
Now you know that Death is near
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Now that you’re the age you are
Your demise cannot be far
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Birthdays come but once a year
Marking time as Death draws near
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Long ago your hair turned grey
Now it’s falling out, they say
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
May the cities in your wake
Burn like candles on your cake,
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

    Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Burn the castle and storm the keep
Kill the women, but save the sheep
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
May your deeds with sheep and yaks
Equal those with sword and axe
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Now you’ve lived another year
Age to you is like stale beer
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Were I sitting in your shoes
I’d go out and sing the blues
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
When you’ve reached this age you know
That the mind is first to go
Happy Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Birthday Wishes for NSS&F

Written By: cahwyguy - Thu Nov 17, 2005 @ 9:18 am PDT

Although she would probably prefer the Weird Al version, she gets this. Are you ready? Are you in front of your large, 13″, Black and White TV set? Let’s watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John, and starts singing the Birthday Cake Polka for “Not So Small and Feisty”, who turns 11 today:

Put another candle on my birthday cake
We’re gonna bake a birthday cake
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I’m another year old today

I’m gonna have a party with my birthday cake
Come on and take some birthday cake
Put another candle on my birthday cake
I’m another year old today

    We’ll have some pie and sandwiches
And chocolate ice cream too
We’ll sing and play the day away
And one more thing I’m gonna do
