[Intro}
D   Em  C
D   Em  C

[Verse 1]
         D             Em
 You can pick yourself up
         C
 You can start walking straight
   D                Em          C
 Tonight you're the life of the party
          D               Em         C
 When the bar lights come on at your paper parade
     D             Em             C
 You don't have to chase down the moon
        D              Em           C
 'Cause I'll leave the light on for you


[Chorus]
               C    G D    
 It's not your birthday
     Am           G           D
 And it's not the Fourth of July
              C    G D
 Tomorrow's a work day
              Am         G            D
 You've got a life and a spaceship to fly
              C G D          Am        G             D
 You've got a woman    and a beautiful yellow-haired daughter
              C      G D
 Come back to earth, kid
                   Am              G          D
 You know that you can't chase the stars underwater, water


[Verse 2]
         D            Em
 You can play all the notes
         C
 You can write all the words
     D            Em          C
 You headlined in all the big cities
              D              Em          C
 But when the spotlights are off and the crowds have gone home
     D        Em         C
 You could be going home too


[Chorus]
               C    G D    
 It's not your birthday
 Am         G          D                  
 This isn't Mardi Gras either
              C    G D
 Tomorrow's a work day
              Am         G            D
 You've got a life and a spaceship to fly
              C G D          Am        G             D
 You've got a woman    and a beautiful yellow-haired daughter
              C      G D
 Come back to earth, kid
                   Am              G          D
 You know that you can't chase the stars underwater, water


[Chorus]
                   C    G D
 No, it's not your birthday
               Am          G         D 
 You should be done waking up on the floor
              C      G D
 Come back to earth, kid
                Am           G      D
 Don't you know you're not a kid anymore?
               C    G D
 You married a good girl
                   Am        G             D 
 She gave you this beautiful yellow-haired daughter
              C      G D
 Come back to earth, kid
                   Am              G          D
 You know that you can't chase the stars underwater, water, water


[Outro]
C   G   D
Am  G   D
C   G   D
Am  G   D

                   C    G  D
 No, it's not your birthday
               Am   G D
 It's not your birthday
               C    G D
 It's not your birthday
          Am   G D
 It's not your day

C   G   D
Am  G   D
C   G   D
Am  G   D

    D             Em
 So blow out your candles
      G           N.C.
 It's better than letting them burn out
