it comes again

I'll just repeat what I wrote last year.

This year I just feel all those things more deeply.

And the fifth holiday (also mentioned here) will be celebrated on August 30.

Happy birthday indeed. Much love from out west, y'all.

This calls for Weird Al, of course:

Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you

Well, it's time to celebrate your birthday, it happens every year
We'll eat a lot of broccoli and drink a lot of beer
You should be good and happy that there's something you can eat
A million people every day are starving in the street

Your daddy's in the gutter with the wretched and the poor
Your mama's in the kitchen with a can of Cycle Four
There's garbage in the water
There's poison in the sky
I guess it won't be long before we're all gonna die

Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you

Well, what's the matter little friend, you think this party is the pits
Enjoy it while you can, we'll soon be blown to bits
The monkeys in the pentagon are gonna cook our goose
Their finger's on the button, all they need is an excuse

It doesn't take a military genius to see
We'll all be crispy critters after World War III
There's nowhere you can run to, nowhere you can hide
When they drop the big one, we all get fried

(Come on boys and girls, sing along, ok?)

Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
wow! (background screaming, sound effect)

Well there's a punk in the alley and he's looking for a fight
There's an Arab on the corner buying everything in sight
There's a mother in the ghetto with another mouth to feed
Seems that everywhere you look today there's misery and greed

I guess you know the Earth is gonna crash into the sun
But that's no reason why we shouldn't have a little fun
So if you think it's scary, if it's more than you can take
Just blow out the candles and have a piece of cake

Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
wow!

Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to you

(Happy Birthday!)

And a pinch to grow an inch!


Oh that takes you back...

I like They Might Be Giants' birthday (or any day) song:

You're older than you've ever been,
And now you're even older,
And now you're even older,
And now you're even older

You're older than you've ever been,
And now you're even older,
And now you're older still

Time
Is marching on
And time
Is still marching on

This day will soon be at an end,
And now it's even sooner,
And now it's even sooner,
And now it's even sooner

This day will soon be at an end,
And now it's even sooner,
And now it's sooner still

[Instrmental refrain]

You're older than you've ever been,
And now you're even older,
And now you're even older,
And now you're even older

You're older than you've ever been,
And now you're even older,
And now you're older still
