A Very Merry Unbirthday

I celebrated my birthday (with office mates) after the Milo Marathon, and not on my actual birthday. Thank you to everyone who gave the cake! It was a total surprise. =)

As they sang an abridged version of "Happy Birthday" while presenting my cake, I remembered the Mad Hatter's Unbirthday Song in the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland (1951). In the movie, Alice stumbles upon the outdoor party of the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse, and the March Hare. Realising that it's also her unbirthday, Alice joins the party. 




Here's how the Unbirthday Song goes:

A very merry unbirthday 

To me 

To who? 

To me 
Oh, you
A very merry unbirthday 
To you 
Who, me? 
To you 
Oh, me
Let's all congratulate us with another cup of tea 
A very merry unbirthday to you
Now statistics prove 
Prove that you've one birthday 
Imagine just one birthday every year 
Ah, but there are 364 unbirthdays 
Precisely why we're gathered here to cheer
A very merry unbirthday 
To me? 
To you 
A very merry unbirthday 
For me? 
For you 
Now blow the candle out, my dear 
And make your wish come true 
A very merry unbirthday to you
