Norwegian Happy Birthday Song:
“Hurra for deg!”
Hurra for deg som fyller ditt år!
Run to the left…
Ja, deg vil vi gratulere!
Alle i ring omkring deg vi står,
og se, nå vil vi marsjere,
bukke, nikke, neie, snu oss omkring,
Bow/curtsy & turn
danse for deg med hopp og sprett og spring,
Dance!
ønske deg av hjertet alle gode ting
Run to the left
og si meg så, hva vil du mere?
Gratulere!
… lift hands and bow!
“Hooray for you!”
(quite direct translation)
