Happy Birthday to my bestest friend,
Your special day is here once more
Here’s wishing for you an abundance
Of good things waiting in store.
And that you have a year of happiness and laughter,
And the very best of everything, hereinafter.

Happy Birthday
To a 
Gentleman of Three Outs
Without Money
Without Wit
Without Manners
Four Outs
Without a Present

But with a great sense of humour

While on the subject of a card, with no gift or cash given as a gift, here's a bunch of verses

You’ll be like me no doubt

The things you need are few 

So when it comes to giving a gift

Money's the practical thing to do

A wheelbarrow load of cash is dodgy

Used fivers under a park bench, old hat

I’ve settled for a cheque inside a card

Arriving on your front door mat

Some people want presents, 

Some want a birthday bash.

But you? Same thing every year.

You just want cash

Happy Birthday

Birthday (Boy) (Girl)
…without the cash!

The lazy person's gift

Is cash stuck in a card

It's what a person does

Who doesn't try very hard

But I thought long and hard

I pondered day and night

Sweated that I'd get it wrong

Knowing you'd get it right

You'd pick the perfect gift for you

That's when this thought came in a flash

This is not just cash I'm giving you

It's a thoughtful person's cash
…in the form of a cheque

Have a great day etc

I'm coming to see you today

So, friend, enjoy my presence

Coz I may have a sparkling personality

But I ain't got no presents
Happy Birthday, Buddy

Happy Birthday

You're now a teen
without the cash!

I'm sooo mean

© V4C

One more year of existence down the drain.
Aint that very true
And you would have just loved the gift
I didn't bother getting you.
Because life’s too short
For opening packages, it’s true
A cheque is the answer

To spend unwisely, knowing you

© V4C

May you live as long as you want to, 

And want to as long as you live.

May you forgive me for the present

Or the money I didn’t give

Welcome to our free online printable Happy Birthday Friend poem page

Inside every older person is a confused younger person 
“What the hell happened”’ (he)(she) muses and guesses
There’s no confusion in your case, my friend
It’s just years of abuse and excesses
So, why stop now?
Party Hearty, My Fine Birthday Friend

A friend gives hope 
When life is low
A friend's a place
Where you can go 
A friend is honest 
A friend is true 
A friend is precious 
My friend is You

Your birthday’s a day to remember
A day to reflect and recall,
All the wonderful days of your life
And may today be the best one of all

Happy, happy birthday, my friend

You’re only as young as you look
So fun times must be sought out
So party hearty today, on your birthday
Coz time is rapidly running out!!

I should have broken this to you gently
But time is of the essence

I'm coming to see you today
So, friend, enjoy my presence
Coz I may have a sparkling personality
But I ain't got no presents

Happy Birthday, Buddy

I know you can’t remember being born.
And, in my mind, grave doubts have arose
Anyway, your mother assures me that you were
So, happy birthday, I suppose

Only a friend as close as me
Can hurl such birthday abuse

Friend Birthday Verses Poems Quotes

(Dave), my friend, now that you're (40)
Don't start to dye your hair 
Don't think of having face lifts 
And don't change the clothes you wear 
Don't modify your language 
Don't rebel and cause outrage 
Decide to do the decent thing 
Just lie about your age

May you live to be 100
And may the last voice you hear be mine.

but the best improve with age.

Or some other brain box sage

Friend Birthday Verses Poems Quotes

“Old age is always 15 years older than you are”
A wise man once said
That way you’ll be 15 years from being old
When, my friend, you’re dead
So go for it
