"Happy Birthday Blues" as written by Will Jennings and Joe Sample....
There she sits all alone, her tear begins to shed
A written letter in her hand, this is how it read

Turned sixteen just yesterday (ooh-ooh-ooh)
All my world was bright and gay (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Thought for sure you'd write or call but you didn't after all
Got the Happy Birthday Blues (Happy Birthday Blues)

Maybe you had lots to do (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Or you found somebody new (ooh-ooh-ooh)
How I pray you'll hear my plea, I'm as lonely as can be
Got the Happy Birthday Blues (Happy Birthday Blues)

I planned just how this day would be for such a long, long time
You'd wish me "Happy Birthday" while I held your hand in mine
I'd blow out all the candles while I wished that you and I
Would be together ever more until the day we die

As I sit here in the gloom (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Of my cold and lonely room (ooh-ooh-ooh)
How my heart is filled with fears and my eyes are filled with tears
Got the Happy Birthday Blues (Happy Birthday Blues)
