Lyrics

[Instrumental]

Wander: Oh...
It's your happy birthday
Here's your happy birthday song
And on your happy birthday,
Nothing can go wrong

I can tell that you're all grumpy
'Cause you've been around a while
Just because you're old and frumpy
Doesn't mean you shouldn't smile
Because...

It's your happy birthday
Here's your happy birthday song
And your birthday best be happy,
'Cause you won't be around for long!

[Instrumental]

Sylvia: So, try not to be so sad
'Bout your impending doom,
Someday, we'll light birthday candles
On your frigid tomb

Wander: Oh...
It's your happy birthday
Here's your happy birthday song
And your birthday won't be happy,
'Til you all sing along!
Everybody!

Watchdogs: Oh...
It's your happy birthday
Here's your happy birthday song
Wander: Just the pit monster!
(The monster mumbles in time)

Everyone: I can tell that you're all grumpy
'Cause you've been around a while
Just because you're old and frumpy doesn't
Wander/Sylvia: Mean you shouldn't...
Wander: What's that I see? Ohhhhhhhh...!!!
Wander/Sylvia: Smile!

[Instrumental]

Wander: Happy birthday, Hater!
