A Birthday Again


 
Another year, and a birthday again
Efforts against as ever in vain
I’ll try not to mutter, to scowl, and complain
Another year and a birthday again
 
Another year and a birthday again
A little more tummy, a little less brain
A little less fire, a little more pain
Another year and a birthday again
 
Another year and a birthday again
When once again I will have to explain
That yes, I want cake, be it orange and plain
Another year and a birthday again
 
Another year and a birthday again
With presents, toy soldiers, a small model plane
Perhaps a wee pint, dear god no champagne
Another year and a birthday again
 
Another year and a birthday again
I want to be awful, I want to profane
But instead I will shiver, and so will refrain
Another year and a birthday again
 
Another year and a birthday again
And yet despite all I’m the same chap in the main!
But he’d laugh, and he’d scoff; he’d be so inhumane...
Another year and a birthday again
