I saw you at the subway the other day
You were drinking hot chocolate
I thought about asking you for a sip
But on second thought I didn't want to burn my tongue
I chased you up the stairs and outside
I got into a taxi cab
I didn't want to see you, you were looking good
I wanted to cool off, take some time out of the busy day
I heard a knock on my door, my door
Who was there?
What are you doing here?
I'm really not sure you should be here right now
Because I'm going. It's getting a little pricey
That you should be in Sweden my friend
Because it's the only place for you
I hear they have really nice gear of sorts there
You should be in Sweden my friend
Yeah, you should be in Sweden
Get yourself to Sweden
Take a photo on the plane I don't care
You should be in Sweden
I'll tell you what we can do
I'll tell you what we can do
I'll tell you what we can do

You're not bent on calling me
And we'll do lunch, I'm sure
Your fax machine can fax my bags
And it'll get in touch with your answering machine's secretary

Your hair doesn't shine like it used to
You're not using that conditioner I gave you last year for your birthday
It was salon selected, I thought you would like it
And now I'm so scared, I'm pale as white
I would invite you to sit but I didn't want you to ruin my new sofa
I've felt this too many times
I just get myself back up the nerve to say, the nerve
That you should be in Sweden my friend
What are you doing here?
You should be in Sweden
You can ski when you're there there
That you should be in Sweden my friend
Yeah, get yourself Sweden
I don't care how you do it
Just go to Sweden, go to Sweden
I'll tell you what we can do
I'll tell you what we can do
I'll tell you what we can do

You're not bent on calling me
But we'll do lunch, I'm sure
Your fax machine can fax me back
And get in touch with my cappuccino maker

You're not bent on calling me
And we'll take for awhile I'm sure
You can get back my postcard machine
And it'll get in touch with your answering machine's secretary

    General CommentEveryone wants birthday freebies- whether its free food, or free drinks at bars, what have you. There's a utilitarian purpose to it, as giving out birthday freebies ensures some repeat business, and getting more people in the doors means more money — crucial during a recession. At some restaurants they have free promotional clubs to join, which means you or your kids will get a birthday freebie, such as Chuck E Cheese, the Old Spaghetti Factory, Del Taco, and Lone Star Steakhouse. Also look out for Black Angus Steak House and Red Robin — you just have to sign up on their websites and you can get personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/09/04/birthday-freebies-sign-great-free-stuff/">birthday freebies, but unfortunately, there are no free birthday payday installment loans.
