Happy birthday, happy birthday,
Be my leader, be my friend.
Said the lover to her Meister
Happy birthday, squeeze my hand.

Filthy water, salted wine,
I am running out of time.
Take my liquor, seize my dope,
Be my beacon, you're my last hope.

Hope, hope is in the lead,
When you go: there's happiness on the street.
Hope, hope is drummin' the beat,
when you chant: there's Happiness on the street.

Happy birthday,
Happy birthday,
Said the loser to her mate.
Until thursday will you rescue me?
For on friday it'll be too late.

Gimme wings, gimme roots,
Send me a messenger, a pair of boots.
Gimme order, free my star,
I am a passenger, but where's my car?

Car, Cadillac'd bring me home
Till you said: you gotto roam!
Boots, them boots will carry me on - on my feet,
There's happiness on the street.

You ordered flour
And They sent you coke
Be a good daughter,
And do not use this rope.

Happy birthday, brother Thursday
Thine's the power to forgive.
New York minute, Berlin Tuesday,
times are changing, people live.

Frozen sista, shine like Gold!
Bury the hatchet, don't become old.
Do not linger in the dark,
Be my star, you gotta be stark.

Gimme a little bit...
Happy Birthday...
Gimme your power...
O, I love your style...
You shall not hide...
Let's strive...
