The Smiths

The Smiths were an English alternative rock band, formed in Manchester in 1982. Based on the song writing partnership of vocalist Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, the band also included bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them the most important alternative rock band to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s.

I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
'Cause you're evil
And you lie
And if you should die
I may feel slightly sad
But I won't cry

Loved and lost
And some may say
When usually it's nothing
Surely you're happy
It should be this way 
I say no, I'm gonna kill my dog
May the lines sag, the lines sag heavy and deep tonight

I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday

'Cause you're evil
And you lie
And if you should die
I may feel slightly sad
But I won't cry

Loved and lost
And some may say
When usually it's nothing
Surely you're happy
It should be this way
I said no
And then I shot myself
So, drink, drink, drink
And be ill tonight

From the one you left behind
From the one you left behind
From the one you left behind
From the one you left behind
Behind
Behind
Behind
Behind
Behind
Behind
Oh, unhappy birthday
Behind
Behind
Behind
