Kathy Young & The Innocents – Happy Birthday Blues lyrics

There she sits all alone, her tear begins to she'd
A written letter in her hand, this is how it read:

Turned sixteen just yesterday
All my world was bright and gay
Thought for sure you'd write or call but you didn't after all
Got the Happy Birthday Blues

Maybe you had lots to do
Or you found somebody new
How I pray you'll hear my plea, I'm as lonely as can be
Got the Happy Birthday Blues

I planned just how this day would be for such a long, long time
You'dwish me Happy Birthday while I held your hand in mine
I'd blow out all the candles while I wished that you and I
Would be together ever more until the day we die

As I sit here in the gloom
Of my cold and lonely room
How my heart is filled with fears and my eyes are filled with tears
Got the Happy Birthday Blues
