The Lyrics

Today, we celebrate the 20th birthday of the only parody writer (thus far) to have parodied the full version of Rapper's Delight, and now, the first to have parodied this disco classic from Dan Hartman. This is a birthday song I wrote for myself & anyone else who has a birthday today or any other days. Enjoy! DKTOS? (Don't Know The Original Song)
4, 3, 2, 1!

You’ve grown a year older,
You’ve grown a bit wiser, too.
You make this day so very special!
Don’t stop now, keep going on strong!

Don’t take for granted your experience,
It got you where you are today.
Until the day we’re all in heaven,
Gotta keep going on,
Yeah, just keep going on!

(Happy birthday!)
Make a wish now!
(Happy birthday!)
(Happy birthday!)
Only happens once a year!

We’re all so proud of you,
You are our shining star!
But we just hope that your cake is not broccoli.

Well, we hope that all your dreams come true,
But we’ll love you nonetheless!
And while this day is still ongoing,
Please enjoy it!
Don’t destroy it!

(Happy birthday!)
Make a wish now!
(Happy birthday!)
(Happy birthday!)
Let us dance & sing a song!
Hey, you know we can’t go wrong!
Can’t go wrong!
Can’t go wrong!




That’s right!



(Happy birthday!)
Happy birthday!
(Happy birthday!)
Happy birthday!
(Happy birthday!)
Let’s enjoy it! Let’s enjoy it!
Let us party while it’s still on!
Don’t you know,
Don’t you know,
Don’t you know,
It’s once a year?

Let us sing it one more time
While the day is still young-
Still young!
(Happy birthday!)
Happy birthday…
In memory of Dan Hartman, 1950-1994
