Happy Birthday, by Stevie Wonder




You know it doesn't make much sense

There ought to be a law against

Anyone who takes offense

At a day in your celebration

Cause we all know in our minds

That there ought to be a time

That we can set aside

To show just how much we love you

And I'm sure you would agree

It couldn't fit more perfectly

Than to have a world party on the day you came to be


Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday


Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday


I just never understood

How a man who died for good

Could not have a day that would

Be set aside for his recognition

Because it should never be

Just because some cannot see

The dream as clear as he

that they should make it become an illusion

And we all know everything

That he stood for time will bring

For in peace our hearts will sing

Thanks to Martin Luther King


Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday


Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday


Why has there never been a holiday

Where peace is celebrated

all throughout the world


The time is overdue

For people like me and you

Who know the way to truth

Is love and unity to all God's children

It should be a great event

And the whole day should be spent

In full remembrance

Of those who lived and died for the oneness of all people

So let us all begin

We know that love can win

Let it out don't hold it in

Sing it loud as you can


Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday

Happy birthday

Happy birthday

Happy birthday

Ooh yeah

Happy birthday...


We know the key to unify all people

Is in the dream that you had so long ago

That lives in all of the hearts of people

That believe in unity

We'll make the dream become a reality

I know we will

Because our hearts tell us so
