Lyrics: Happy Birthday [Concrete Blond]

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 [assignment: name]:

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
