When I accepted this job
I was resigned to my fate
When I got there early
She`d arrive late
You can say she`s gone forever 
Or just sit tight and wait
She said I was unprincipled 
That I was not the first 

Like the Phoenix coming back 
From the ashes, uh-huh
I know what`s good,
But I know what trash is
In the head-lights,
In the highlights of her hair...
Hit the head lines 
But she`s not there:

Many happy returns
Many happy returns
 These are the lessons I could have learned 
Return. Many happy returns
And these are the letters I should have burned 

Okay, I`m sad, not blue
Okay, remember 
All that matters to me now
Is the message I sent her

Like the world, spinning `round
On its axis, uh-huh
I know democracy 
But I know what`s fascist 
When she`s gone, all I got to learn 
Is the law of diminishing return
When she`s here, one thing I`ve found  Things get better second time around 

Many happy returns
Many happy returns
 These are the lessons I could have learned 
Return. Many happy returns
And these are the letters I should have burned 

Okay I`m sad, not blue
Okay, remember 
All that matters to me now
Is the message I sent her

Now she`s gone, she`s gone away
Now she`s gone forget her
 Coming back another day
If you`d only let her

Now she`s gone, she`s gone away
But she`s gone forget her
 Coming back another day
So why resurrect her?

Many happy returns
Many happy returns
 These are the lessons I could have learned 
Return. Many happy returns
And these are the letters I should have burned
