  1. “Here they come, with birthday cheer,
    Bringing gifts just once a year,
    People you don’t even like;
    You really wish they’d take a hike.
    This should be a glad occasion;
    But it seems more like a SWAT invasion.
    Go away! Just take a break!
    Oh well, at least there’s birthday cake.”

– Joanna Fuchs

  1. “Happy birthday!
    You may look a little older,
    Sadly youth doesn’t come cheap,
    So skip all those Botox parties,
    And just get your beauty sleep.
    Be glad you’re young at heart,
    And still look as good as gold,
    Too bad you’re not a millionaire,
    And can’t put your looks on hold.”

– Kevin Nishmas

  1. “You’ve done quite well since your start,
    So as you grow older take heart,
    Keep up the good work and don’t be a jerk,
    Stay happy till you’re an old fart.”

  1. “Today is your birthday, don’t pull your hair,
    Look in the mirror, nature was fair,
    Not a day over twenty,
    I’m kidding, you’re plenty.
    Don’t mean to burst your bubble,
    But stop asking for trouble,
    You know what I mean,
    When you drink that caffeine.
    What should I bring?
    Just give me a ring.
    Elephant or clown?
    I knew you would frown.”

– Anonymous

  1. “Happy birthday!
    You’re still a teenager at heart,
    Eating in your bed is routine,
    Early-bird dinners are not your style,
    Midnight pizza is more your scene.
    No one has a right to call you old,
    You can still pass for middle aged,
    All your parts hurt but still work,
    With the right nip, tuck and dosage.
    You have never looked so young,
    Your head’s still hairier than your ears,
    Your arms don’t jiggle like Jello,
    And zits still reduce you to tears.”

– Kevin Nishmas
