Some funny birthday songs are the Bonita Canyon version of "Happy Birthday," Jack Astor's "Birthday Song" and the 70s BBC "Birthday Song." Funny Spanish birthday songs are "Apio Verdi a Tí," "Sapo Verde Eres Tú" and "Cumpleaños Fatal." Most songs are sung to the tune of the "Happy Birthday" song.
The lyrics to the most well-known funny version of "Happy Birthday" are, "Happy birthday to you; you live in a zoo; you look like a monkey; and you smell like one too!"
Jack Astor's "Birthday Song" is sung while the birthday person stands on a chair with one hand on his hip and the other held up in the air. The lyrics read, "I'm a little teapot, short and stout. When I get all steamed up, hear me shout; eat your birthday cake and get the heck out!"
The lyrics to the 70s BBC "Birthday Song" are, "Happy birthday to you; squashed tomatoes and stew; bread and butter in the gutter; happy birthday to you!"
To sing the Bonita version of the "Birthday Song," vocalists clap their hands while singing, "Today is a birthday; I wonder for whom? It must be for somebody right in this room. So look all around you for somebody who; is smiling and happy; my goodness, it's you!"
