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 will agree
It couldn't fit more perfectly
Than to have a world party on the day you came to be

(Chorus)
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday

(Repeat once)

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

(Chorus)
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday

(Repeat once)

(Bridge)
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
You 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

(Chorus)
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday

(Repeat 4 times)

(Background)
Happy birthday
Happy borthday, to you
(Repeat in rounds of three)

(Stevie)
Ooh yeah
We know the key to unity of 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
