"Happy Birthday (For Yesterday)" as written by Martin Kierszenbaum and Jinho Hakim Ferreira....
Did you skate figure eight
on the ice in Central Park?
Did you throw balls of snow
at your friends until dark?

I guess I wanted to say...

I first called you when I woke up
I think it was almost eight
But I probably just missed you
I must have been too late

Called back that night at seven-thirty
Then I waited up till ten
In the dark in my pajamas
as the phone rang out again

Did the host raise a toast
to the day your life began?
Did someone bake your favourite cake
with your name in marzipan?

I just called to say
Happy birthday for...

I couldn't help but think of last year
when it was just us two
But I'm sure you can celebrate
without the help of you-know-who

And if all the gang were with you
it must have been a gas
Didn't want you to think that
I forgot, I kid you not

Now, did you go to a show
and sentimentally keep the stub?
Did you give hugs from the drugs
that you bought in a night club?

I just called to say
Happy birthday
for yesterday
