Please don’t sing “Happy Birthday”

IMHO, Happy Birthday is one of the worst songs since the Star Spangled Banner. Usually, the song is sung so slowly that it sounds more like a dirge than a celebration of a new year.  Suggestions are welcome for a different tune (stolen) and words (original), example:

Hey look her over

Its’ been another year.

Don’t she look great

Considerin’ she’s still here.

Dear, stick around we’d like

To see some more

Cause you’re the one today that we do all adore!

Happy Birthday to me <g>.
