lyrics

I'm gonna dance like it's my birthday
'Cause I need it
Cut me a big ol' piece of cake off
And I'll eat it
I'm gonna wear an it's my birthday sign
Walk around the mall like the day's all mine
It's all mine

I'm gonna dance like it's my birthday
'Cause I want to
I'm gonna send myself a special card
That plays music inside
I'm gonna open my mail, act so surprised
Then open and close that joint all night
All night

Let me tell you why
Yesterday I cried
From the time the sun went up
Till the sun came down again
I believed a lie, yes I did
And I was so torn up about it
But I refuse
I refuse
I refuse

I'm gonna dance like it's my birthday
'Cause I have to
I'm gonna wear my prettiest dress
And be glad to
I'm gonna buy myself some red balloons
Let em float in the air as I fly me to the moon
I'm gonna dance like it's my birthday
'Cause I choose
I know I will not have a bad day
I refuse to
I'm gonna sing happy birthday to me
And receive all my well wishes happily

Let me tell you why
Yesterday I cried
From the time the sun went up
Till the sun came down again
I believed a lie, yes I did
And I was so torn up about it
But I refuse
I refuse
I refuse

I'm not too fat
I'm not ugly
I'm not stupid
I'm not crazy
I'm not gonna be broke forever
And yes we'll always be together
My dreams are not to big
And you can't dictate how I live
Happiness is mine
And I will not believe a lie
My daddy loves me, yes he do
And I love me too
'Cause I refuse
I refuse
I refuse
