A Birthday Song for a Friend

Posted: July 23, 2013 in lyrics

Happy Birthday
English lyrics for the famous German  birthday song:  “Wie schön dass du geboren bist”:

HOW BEAUTIFUL THAT YOU WERE BORN

Today it might rain, it might storm or it might snow,
and still we see the sunshine in you from head to toe.
Thank you for your love and for the time we spend
Let’s laugh and cry and pray together my friend!
Let’s laugh and cry and pray together my friend!
—-
Refrain:
How beautiful that you were born,
we would have missed you I’d have sworn
how wonderful that you are strong
we wish you happy birthday all day long
——–

We send our wishes as prayers all up high
that in your future health and happiness may lie
Seeing you so happy, that is what we like.
Today we tell all sorrows
please go and take a hike
Today we tell all sorrows
please go and take a hike..

Refrain:
How beautiful that you were born,
we would have missed you I’d have sworn
how wonderful that you are strong
we wish you happy birthday all day long
—-

Add another year now and don’t take it too hard
You will never change though nature’s aging part
Do now count your years and never you forget,
they are like a treasure you should not regret!
they are like a treasure you should not regret!
—–
