Lyrics: The Pirate Birthday Song [Heather Alexander]

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 wearing an eyepatch, with a parrot on his shoulder, introduces himself as Sheriff John, and pulls out his accordion, and says, “Here’s a new birthday tune, sung to the pirate classic “Blow the Man Down”, with lyrics by Heather Alexander

He keys an “A” note, and then says… “This is for you, [assignment: name]:

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.
