Hello darlin' happy birthday I've decided not to give you a present this year In fact I think it's about time I took some things away I'd like to take away this suspicion that I know clouds your world at times By giving you some faith to hold on to honey whenever your hand is not in mine
Happy birthday darlin' I've no presents no fancy cake But I hope I'll make you happy with everything I take
I'd like to take away some of your lonely moments by spendin' more of mine with you And I'd like to take away some of those so-so kisses And replace them with ones that really say I love you And I wanna take away the doubt you sometimes have about my love By showin' more much more that I've shown lately And then if someone said asked you what I've got you for your birthday Well you can say why he didn't give me anything but he sure took a lotta things away Happy birthday darlin'... Happy birthday darlin'... Happy birthday darlin'
