Happy Birthday to You

Message  gerardM le Mar 6 Mai - 23:48

Hi there.

Here're the traditional lyrics:
Traditional Happy Birthday Song Lyrics
Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday Dear (name)
Happy Birthday to You.

From good friends and true,
From old friends and new,
May good luck go with you,
And happiness too.

Alternative ending:
How old are you?
How old are you?
How old, How old
How old are you?

What friends sing:
Happy birthday to you
You belong in a zoo
You look like a monkey,
And you smell like one too.

... Wikipedia...
In Australia, the United Kingdom and New Zealand, immediately after "Happy Birthday" has been sung, it is traditional for one of the guests to enthusiastically lead with "Hip hip..." and then for all of the other guests to join in and say "...hooray!" This is normally repeated three times. This custom goes back to much older songs in Dutch (Lang zal hij/zij leven), German (Hoch soll er/sie leben) and Swedish (Ja, må han/hon leva)
The origins of "Happy Birthday to You" date back to at least the mid-19th century, when two sisters, Patty and Mildred J. Hill, introduced the song "Good Morning to All" to Patty's kindergarten class in Kentucky.

Hi Gérard !
A very happy birthday to you and all the best for the year to come. Thank you again for taking the time to keep "Le café polyglotte sur le net" going day by day.
If you have time here is the link to different birthday songs in many languages. The tune to the song 'Happy Birthday to you" is the same.

Hi Muriel, Patrick,

Thanks or your wishes!

Before the interntional "Happy birthday to you", the French version in use when I was a kid (original music):
Bon anniversaire, nos vœux les plus sincères
Que ces quelques fleurs vous apportent le bonheur
Que l'année entière vous soit douce et légère
Et que l'an fini, nous soyons tous réunis
Pour chanter en chœur : "Bon Anniversaire !"

Autant de bougies, autant de printemps
Et soudain par magie, on arrive à vingt ans
Alors ce jour-là parmi tous les rires
C'est vous sur ces terres que l'on attend
On voudrait crâner, mais on a beau dire
Ça fait quelque chose quand on entend
Gérard, J'aimais l'autre strophe et j'attendais avec impatience les vingt ans....

Dear friends,
Hi Gerard!

Many congratulations on your birthday !

Thank you for your latest post. I would like to add following link:

http://gauterdo.com/ref/bb/bon.anniversaire.html

It's an old fashioned song, I must say. However my mother was very pleased to hear it  once again as we celebrated her 90th birthday two weeks ago. We all tried to sing it and it was great fun. You can imagine!
We also sang a happy birthday song in German which is well known and which I like very much:
„Wie schön, dass du geboren bist“ von Rolf Zuckowski
http://german.about.com/library/blmus_schoengeboren.htm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbcVZaJOItY

and a Mexican birthday song „las Mañanitas“ which our son-in-law recommended us.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfZw8XB0Iv8&list=PLBBCE6BF6A48E55C5

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sngy0bn6QAs

We tried to do our best but ….  

Mir hat das deutsche Lied am besten gefallen. Es ist ganz logisch!!!

Do you know „le vivat flamand“ ?

Gute Unterhaltung!

Thanks very much Odile for all those links and songs that I enjoyed listening.
Wie schön, dass du geboren bist“
Nothing is more  valuable than that sentence and it is so nice to hear that from your family and relatives.  
In my family we follow the Flemish vivat tradition, an ancient Flemish custom of uniting champagne with wedding or birthday celebrations. "vivat" is a term used to wish the couple or host long life and prosperity.
It is traditionally sung at the end of meals, to honour a guest or a couple.

During the song, the honoured person (or couple) sits while 2 people horizontally  hold a towel above his (their) head, a 3rd person pouring some champagne  on the towel .
There is always the cheeky cousin ready to pour half of the bottle for fun. Never mind if he destroys a beautiful hair set  affraid

Hi Odile,

Thanks a lot for your words and songs that I didn't know.

> It's an old fashioned song, I must say.
As you probably know, I'm pro-American but strangely here, I don't like to read the quoted sentence. I don't like this French song to be forgotten and said "old fashioned" Wink because the melody is beautiful and it deserves to be sung and kept.
I don't think it is necessary that the entire world adopts "Happy birthday to you": diversity is desirable especially with such songs which already gather people whatever their languages (birthdays or any celebrations are never hostile); such songs really are culture: let's keep cultures alive.
