Let's not forget last night
Yeah, how we drove along the Yarra
How we sang harmonies
To Carole King

These three years now just gone
They are the legends of my mind
We both kneel at these rocks
To drink of the mem'ry

You are the tunes in my head, the fire in my ribs
You are the voice in my heart that whispers compassion
Happy birthday Helen
Oh-oh..., oh-oh..., oh-oh...

We kissed on that bridge that fell down
While we held hands at the Taj
We've been stuck in a cave
With that bloke who says Oi Am

And when I cried for my cruel heart
You rubbed my back 'til I felt better
We ate bread on the lake
And yearned for the seasons

You are the tunes in my head, the fire in my ribs
You are the voice in my heart that whispers compassion
Happy birthday Helen
Oh-oh..., oh-oh..., oh-oh...

You are the tunes in my head, the fire in my ribs
You are the voice in my heart that whispers compassion

You are the storm on the ocean, poems in the trees
The smell of the winter that haunts me each autumn
You're my everything
You are my everything
You are my everything
Happy Birthday Helen
Oh-oh..., oh-oh..., oh-oh...
Shake

Oh-oh..., oh-oh..., oh-oh...
Oh-oh..., oh-oh..., oh-oh...
Happy birthday Helen

    Happy birthday helen is a jaunty tune about love, happiness and the friendship of a few good mates. The hidden message, however, is that helen is a demon setting fire within the poor man's ribs and whispering at him from his heart. This man has a serious case of demonic possession and should probably have an exorcism.
