Happy Birthday

I woke up Thursday morning with this Concrete Blonde song in my head---I owned the album 10 years ago and used to think of this song all the time, but haven't since then... My birthday's not even for a couple of weeks, but this song still makes me feel happy.


Well, outside in the hall there's a catfight
It's well after midnight
I guess I'll be allright
I'm laid out on the floor
Drunk and poor
How much longer how much more

Rock me to sleep
Strong & deep.
The screaming cats they give me the creeps
But aside from all that I feel no pain
Staring up at the ceiling stains
...Neon in the window
...Sirens far away
...News on the radio happy birthday happy birthday happy
birthday

They're at it again next door
This whole floor I swear
They're out to drive me crazy
Not right now I'm high as a cloud I'm soft and gray and lazy
..Smoking Out the window,
...feeling far away
...News on the radio happy birthday happy birthday happy
birthday

Fly me
out the window.
Somewhere far away
News on the radio, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday.

Speaking of birthdays... I get "Astrocenter" horoscopes e-mailed to me daily. A couple of days ago, the generic thing said something like, I've been in Saturn Hell since April 4th, and now it's time to move on... Amen.

As a general thing, I'm also interested in the "7-year-cycle" theory... I switched over from my "partying" to my "Internet" mode back in early 2001... I've given it my all with, honestly, not a lot to show for it... I'm on the cusp now of something else...
