    Have a Very Happy Birthday!

    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.
