"Sister, It's Your Birthday!"

(The jolly ‘tap-room song’ from the end of ‘Time. Stopped.’/ ‘When The Clock Broke…’):

Oh, sister, say you can’t get away,

Tried hard to break the black,

And, sister’s found she can’t get around,

Got lost in a one-track mind.

 

Go forward through smoky darkness,

Maybe there’s a bright light,

Another year, don’t call it solemn,

Maybe there’s another light;

It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday once again,

It’s your birthday! Do da da doo da da da da!

 

Oh, sister, say you’ve been given one more chance;

And sister’s found a brand new way out!

 

Go forward through smoky darkness,

Maybe there’s a bright light,

Another year, don’t call it solemn,

Maybe there’s another light;

It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday once again,

It’s your birthday! Do da da doo da da da da!

 

Na na na na, here you go,

Na na na na, another day!

Na na na na, you and me,

We’ll be free,

Wahee!

It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday once again,

It’s your birthday!

 

Go forward through smoky darkness,

Maybe there’s a brighter light,

Another year, don’t call it solemn,

Maybe there’s another light;

It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday once again,

It’s your birthday! Do da da doo da da da da!

Da da da da daa da!

The End
