"Happy Birthday" as written by and Johnette Lin Napolitano....
outside in the hall there's a catfight
it's just after midnight
i guess i'll be alright
i'm layin out on the floor
drunk and poor
how much longer, how much more

rock me to sleep
strong and deep
the screaming cats, they give me the creeps
but aside from all that, i feel no pain
staring up at the ceiling stains

neon in the window
sirens far away
news on the radio
happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

they're at it again next door
this whole floor i swear
they're out to drive me crazy
but not right now
i'm high as a cloud, i'm soft and gray and lazy

smoking out the window
feeling far away
news on the radio
happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

fly me out the window
somewhere far away
news on the radio
happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday
happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

    General CommentThis song reminds me of birthdays I've had when you feel slightly non-plussed. Big deal, it's my birthday, meanwhile I'm stuck in my flat doing nothing but smoking and listening to a cat fight.
