Chord transcription by Mikayel Abazyan mikayelabazyan@yahoo.com


[Intro:]  { D   A   C   A   D }  x2

D         A
I've got something to say,

       C                        A
and it ain't the usual sort of sob-story

          D
that you hear every day.

D         A
I've got something to ask,

        C                  A
and I know that now's the time,

                          D
now all the rooms of the party are dark.

  D             A
Proffer me the candy,

       F              G
yes, I understand is fine;

  D           A
blow another candle out

       F           G
and throw another line....


 Bm                  D
Birthday girl, I've got something for you,

        C                     D
there's ice in the cauldron, look out now;

 Bm             D
birthday girl, here comes a special

      C                 D
like Hansel and Gretel never had.


         D              A
There's parrots in the pantry

             F              G
and there's lizards in the loo;

         D               A
there's bloaters in the bathroom

          F          G
and this party is a zoo;

     D              A
I'm sitting in the kitchen

        C               G
trying hard to talk to you


Bm                  D
Birthday girl, I've got something for you,

        C                     D
there's ice in the cauldron, look out now;

 Bm             D
birthday girl, here comes a special

      C                 D
like Hansel and Gretel never had.

{ D   A   C   A   D } x2


D       A
I just wanted to say

          C                        A               D
that I'd    like to make this the happiest of all your birthdays

D                    A
  and if that means turning the key

           C                                 A
then I'll     turn it with you and there'll     be no doubt

           D
about the way I agree,


Bm                  D
Birthday girl, I've got something for you,

        C                     D
there's ice in the cauldron, look out now;

 Bm             D
birthday girl, here comes a special

      C                 D
like Hansel and Gretel never had.


Bm                  D
Birthday girl, I've got something for you,

        C                     D
there's ice in the cauldron, look out now;

 Bm             D
birthday girl, here comes a special

      C                 D
like Hansel and Gretel never had.
