lyrics

Happy birthday to the girl who taught me to be cruel
A valuable lesson I could certainly do without
I don't believe in anger and I don't believe in right
But when that girl was angry, all that she could do was fight

I'd refuse to take the bait and go
Which only would enrage her, so she'd give me more
Until I'd reach my breaking point and snap at her
And she'd start to cry
That girl was never happy without teardrops in her eyes

She could spot my insecurities
And use them in her insults so sarcastically
I know now I'm not bald or old
And how I spend my time
Or what I weigh or who I'm with
Is nobody's business but mine

Being on the receiving end of all this
Taught me to turn it around on her, and this I do regret
Her birthday's coming brought all this up, and that is where it will end
For I also learned how to not be cruel, and never will again.
