A Birthday Song for mommyathome

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 says: “Today, folks, we have an unusual request, for a song from a group called, uhh, Concrete Blonde (hey, Bob, is that a real group name?). In any case, I’ll try to sing this right with my ukulele here, as we wish the happiest of birthdays to mommyathome“:

Outside in the hall there’s a catfight
It’s well after midnight
I guess I’ll be allright
I’m laid out on the floor
Drunk and poor
How much longer how much more

Rock me to sleep
Strong & deep.
The screaming cats they give me the creep
But aside from all that I feel no pain
Staring up at the ceiling stains
…neon in the window
…sirens far away
…news on the radio happy birthday happy birthday happy birthday

    They’re at it again next door
This whole floor I swear
They’re out to drive me crazy
Not right now I’m high as a cloud I’m soft and gray and lazy
…neon in the window
…sirens far away
…news on the radio happy birthday happy birthday happy birthday

Fly me
Out the window.
Somewhere far away
Singing on the radio

[Did you know you can pick which song the Sheriff sings for you on your birthday? It’s easy. Just visit the 7th Annual Birthday Poll on Livejournal (FB users: you can now log into LJ with your FB ID and vote in the poll!). Note that if you want the birdie to be able to inform the Sheriff about your birthday, you need to make sure your birth month and day is in your LJ or FB profile, and it is visible to your friends. Note that the Sheriff only sings a song if I know you personally or you’re a regular commenter. So don’t lurk!]
