Have a Very Happy Birthday!

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


With excitement

1. Have a very happy birthday

Filled with sunshine ev’rywhere!

May the year bring joy and gladness

And the love of friends who care.

2. Have a most exciting birthday!

Share a smile with someone new.

Say a kind word to your neighbor;

Let him know a happy you.

3. Have a very special birthday!

Add a candle, blow it out,

Share your cake, and share your friendship;

That’s what birthdays are about.
