Happy birthday

I'll say it again: Clare Grogan often dances like she's attempting to self-administer a chiropractic adjustment. That doesn't stop me from imitating the moves every time I ritually play this on my birthday. It would be strange if I imitated it during my ritual viewing of Happy Birthday to Me, though.

"Happy, happy birthday, baby ..."

This post was worth it only because I saw Ernie blow a lit match out.

Happy Birthday, Mister President.

No, no, Happy Birthday to MEEEEE!

Side note: This was the first slasher movie my friends and I ever snuck into so it holds a very very special place in my heart. This trailer is missing her singing the song all creepy though. We did impressions of that for years.

Rip diddle lip dip dip dip its your birthday

I have to admit that I found most of the songs in FPP insufferable (save Stevie Wonder and Ernie) but none nearly as insufferable as this.

The surinam way:

a di mi yere yu friyari
a di mi yere yu friyari
a di mi yere yu friyari, dang mi kon fristeri yu.

ano fu yu kuku, ano fu yu sopi
ano fu yu kuku, ano fu yu sopi
ano fu yu kuku, ano fu yu sopi, ma mi kom versteri yu


Translation:

When I heard it was your birthday
When I heard it was your birthday
When I heard it was your birthday
When I heard it was your birthday, I came to congratulate you

Not for your cake, not for your booze
Not for your cake, not for your booze
Not for your cake, not for your booze
Not for your cake, not for your booze, but to congratulate you
