Happy Birthday (my version)

Happy Birthday to You!

There was some scandal and a lawsuit declaring that the song, “Happy Birthday to You” was NOT in the public domain. Judge said it was. So for now it is.

But never mind, I’ve written a birthday song, and I’m putting it in to the PUBLIC DOMAIN.

Here are the lyrics plus the melody. I’ve written two versions. The first i a simple version, the second has more lyrics. Choose whichever you like or any lines you like.

The music is only 4 notes,, C,D,E,F. so it should be in anyone’s range. The chords are C, F, and G7 in that order.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Simple Version.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Full Version.

Happy Birthday to you!
