The Birthday Song

Postby Kuraara » Wed 11.15.2006 11:16 pm

My freind's birthday is this Saturday and she's really interested in Japanese culture as well as me. Does anyone know the lyrics to the "Happy Birthday" song in Japan? I want to sing it for her as part as my present.

I can't find the official lyrics since it's still copywrighted. (and I left Japan to teach in the States and other things about 2 years ago).

Do you mean "Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, etc."?

If so, I'm afraid the answer may be a little disappointing:

「ハーピバースディートゥーユー、 ハーピバースディートゥーユー、 ハーピバースディーディーャ (insert name)、 ハーピバースディートゥーユー 」

Unfortunately I'm not joking.

don't sing it in public. it falls under heinous US copyright laws and it is illegal to publicly perform the song without permission. :(

If you DO sing it in public, (in america) no one will care. They'll just start singing, if not roll their eyes and walk away.
