  • I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
    I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
    'Cause you're evil
    And you lie
    And if you should die
    I may feel slightly sad
    But I won't cry

    Loved and lost
    And some may say
    When usually it's nothing
    Surely you're happy
    It should be this way
    I say no, I'm gonna kill my dog
    May the lines sag, the lines sag heavy and deep tonight

    I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
    I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
    'Cause you're evil
    And you lie
    And if you should die
    I may feel slightly sad
    But I won't cry

    Loved and lost
    And some may say
    When usually it's nothing
    Surely you're happy
    It should be this way
    I said no
    And then I shot myself
    So, drink, drink, drink
    And be ill tonight

    From the one you left behind
    From the one you left behind
    From the one you left behind
    From the one you left behind
    Behind
    Behind
    Behind
    Behind
    Behind
    Behind
    Oh, unhappy birthday
    Behind
    Behind
