Lyrics

It's Your Birthday
© 2013 Grant Maloy smith

It's your birthday
and everyone wants to be near you
So why are you crying?
Your mother's outside
and she'll hear you

It's your birthday
but you don't even seem any older
you're a sensible girl
but you carry the world
on your shoulder

So unlock the door
and come out tonight
You're friends are all waiting
it's quarter to nine
There's beer in the cooler
and dandelion wine
It's Your birthday

It's your birthday
and everyone sent you a message
I've been here for hours
my paycheck in flowers
it's impressive

It's the first day
You're wondering why bad things happen
but who gives a damn?
I'm starting the van
Let's get cracking

Chorus
