Birthday Wishes for underpope

Written By: cahwyguy - Thu Dec 31, 2009 @ 7:08 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. He pulls out his accordion, and then starts singing “Happy Birthday” (from Weird Al Yankovic’s debut album) for underpope:

Well, it’s time to celebrate your birthday, / It happens every year / We’ll eat a lot of broccoli / And drink a lot of beer

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 pulls out his accordion, and then starts singing the Birthday Cake Polka for aviatrix:

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 bellwethr

Written By: cahwyguy - Sun Dec 20, 2009 @ 6:52 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 bellwethr… but wait… the Sheriff’s not on today. Instead, we have a funny looking group of three 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

Birthday Wishes for neo_tanuki

Written By: cahwyguy - Fri Dec 11, 2009 @ 7:51 pm 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 pulls out his accordion, and says: “Now, let’s sing this together for neo_tanuki, to the tune of the pirate classic “Blow the Man Down” (lyrics by Heather Alexander)”. He keys an “A” note, and starts:

You say it’s your birthday, well, tell me who cares.
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.
We’ll tie up your feet, make you walk down the stairs.
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.

A cake with the candles all over the place.
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.
When you make a wish, they blow up in your face.
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.

Yo-ho, Yo-ho, Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.

      You’ll get lots of presents, tied up in a sack.
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.
And when you unwrap them, we’ll take them all back.
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.

But we love you; so don’t get us wrong.
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.
Just wanted to tease you with this nasty song
Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.

Yo-ho, Yo-ho, Yo-ho, so it’s your birthday.
