the birthday song lyrics – charlie mcdonnell

this is a song that i wrote you for your birthday
because i couldn’t be bothered to buy you anything
and i know that you might think that writing this song required more effort
than going out and buying you something
but i can promise that it didn’t
i’m not even going to include your name in this song
because that way i can use it on somebody else
and if you listen closely then you might be able to tell
that i only bothered using three chords
i guess that just shows you how much i care

happy birthday insert name here
congratulations on living another year
only joking i did get you something
and it’s right here

/ charlie mcdonnell lyrics
