decorations fell
a red and green wives tale
a silver line surrounds
rooftops and black clouds
they're on their way to me

well happy birthday to me
the forgotten king
and happy birthday to me
the forgotten king

open hands outstretched
to receive their prize
oh but i could give you anything
yes anything
you're everything to me

well happy birthday to me
the forgotten king
and happy birthday to me
the forgotten king

for you (I'll be forgetting me)
for you (I'll be forgetting me)
for you (I'll be forgetting me)
for you (I'll be forgetting me)

woo!

for you I'll be
forgetting me

    General Commentwhen it keeps saying "for you i'll be foregetting me..." it sounds like "for you i will eff anything..." i felt really bad for thinking of that but even if you watch danny's lips while he's singing it looks like it too. for real.

    hahahahaha... don't feel bad for thinking that at all. cause the guys themselves KNOW that their fans think that. it was a mistake that WAS NOT intentional on the album. i'm friends with all of the guys in the band and we CONSTANTLY give them crap about that song and how they should put a warning on it or something...
