I think it is the McGuire Sisters. We had that 78RPM record at home and each of our birthdays my dad would wake us up to that song playing.

Hi, Thanks for the lyrics. I remember we used to sing this song for Birthday kids in our boarding school back in India.

In Rutland, Vermont in the late 1960's every Sunday the local Polish radio show would honor birthdays with this song, played to a lively Polka tune.

Thank you for the lyrics ...which includes the words "May good luck galore.." As kids we sang it wrong "Take a BOW"

This is a very old song from the sixties we used to sing this in the school, it has a wonderful tune too, I will try and upload the song for all to hear and sing too.
