Representative Text

1 Sing a song of birthday banners,
Waving all along the year;
Bringing joy and bringing gladness,
Sing the one we welcome hear.

Waving, waving,
Birthday banners gay!
Waving, waving,
On this happy day.

2 Bright above the winter birthdays,
Bend the skies of purest blue;
Springtime birthdays see the shimmer
Of the young leaves’ tender hue. [Refrain]

3 Summer birthdays wear red roses,
Gold is autumn’s sunny hue;
Come and choose your birthday banner,
While we all sing “Joy to you!” [Refrain]
