Lyrics: Happy Birthday (Tom Chapin)

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, pulls out his guitar, and sings (to the tune of “Merry Widow Waltz” by Franz Lehar):

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, we love you.
Happy Birthday
And may all your dreams come true.
When you blow out the candles
One light stays aglow.
It’s the lovelight in your eyes where’er you go.
