A greeting on your birthday
For a very happy day
And then a year
That brings the best
Of everything your way


Happy Birthday Darling 
Is what I want to say
I will try to see that you 
Have a really special day 
wink, wink


Because today's so special
It really wouldn't do,
To send one simple birthday wish
To last the whole year through
So this wishes happy moments,
A day when dreams come true,
And a year that's filled with all the things
That mean the most to you
Happy Birthday Darling
