With apologies to John Lennon.
So this is thirty.
And what have you done?
Not a damn thing worth telling;
You're a shame-inducing son
And so this is thirty
It's too late to have fun
You're nobody's dear one
And you're no longer young
A very merry birthday
Try to live out this year
If you make it through this one
I'll try not to sneer
This is your goddamn birthday
You've never been strong
You thought you were better
Looks like you were wrong
And so happy birthday
You've gained no insight
To everyone reading:
I love you. Good night.

Although a positive thing about turning 30 is that you did complete the 20s.
...Never been strong? Couldn't be further from the truth.
See, the thing is, you can look back at incidents in your life and see where you were weak. We all can. But I think of you as a man who would walk through fire for me. And for all your suggestions that this is due to being crazy, or having nothing to lose, I know the truth. You're a friend not because it's easy, or because you have no other options, but because you're strong enough to be a friend.
For goodness sake, remember who I was in 1995? And you stayed friends with me until I caught up to the rational world?
There are many adjectives that apply to you, but weak? Not from where I'm standing.
Oh, yeah -- I almost forgot...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
HAPPY BIRHTDAY TO YOU!
YOU'RE NOT REALLY A MONKEY:
PLEASE STOP FLINGING POO!

30 is when it starts to get good. Cheers!

As sad as the content was, as an experienced parody lyric writer myself, this was really, really good!

Well, thank the maker you got that out of your system! I actually think J. L. would like it. Happy Birthday John! It's another year, it's another chance, it's another opportunity to do more stuff. 30 is a lot like the 20's only older. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Shut it down! You are loved and there is nothing you can do about it! Ha ha ha ha ha! <--- Evil laugh.
Ok, the 31 year old in me wants to go gouge my eyes out, cause I'm old.
Happy Birthday, by the way! It really does get better from here.
