Happy birthday

Year: 1980 - Album: Hotter Than July

	  INTRO (2x): 
C / / /   Bb / / /   am / / /   G / F / 
 
Verse: 
             C 
You know it doesn't make much sense 
               Bb 
There ought to be a law against 
   am 
Anyone who takes offense 
   G         F 
At a day in your celebration 
         C 
Cause we all know in our minds 
           Bb 
That there ought to be a time 
     am 
That we can set aside 
     G            F        
To show just how much we love you 
         F 
And I'm sure you would agree 
             G 
It couldn't fit more perfectly 
         F                         G 
Than to have a world party on the day you came to be 
 
 
Chorus: 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
      (F)   C 
Happy birthday 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
      (F)   C 
Happy birthday 
 
 
Verse: 
        C 
I just never understood 
       Bb 
How a man who died for good 
           am 
Could not have a day that would 
    G                 F 
Be set aside for his recognition 
        C 
Because it should never be 
        Bb 
Just because some cannot see 
      am 
The dream as clear as he 
       G                    F 
that they should make it become an illusion 
       F 
And we all know everything 
          G 
That he stood for time will bring 
        F 
For in peace our hearts will sing 
           G 
Thanks to Martin Luther King 
 
 
Chorus: 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
      (F)   C 
Happy birthday 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
       C 
Happy birthday to you 
      (F)   C 
Happy birthday 
 
 
Bridge: 
dm                          am 
Why has there never been a holiday 
dm 
Where peace is celebrated 
G#         Bb       C 
all throughout the world 
 
 
Verse: 
     C 
The time is overdue 
        Bb 
For people like me and you 
      am 
Who know the way to truth 
    G                F 
Is love and unity to all God's children 
                 C 
It should never be a great event 
          Bb 
And the whole day should be spent 
    am 
In full remembrance 
     G                              F 
Of those who lived and died for the oneness of all people 
    F 
So let us all begin 
     G 
We know that love can win 
       F 
Let it out don't hold it in 
         G           G# 
Sing it loud as you can 
 
 
Chorus:

Ooh yeah 
 
C# / / /   B / / /   Bbm / / /   G# / / /     (repeat this until end) 
Happy     birthday... 
 
We know the key to unity all people 
It's in the dream that you had so long ago 
That lives in all of the hearts of the people 
That believe in unity 
We'll make the dream become a reality 
I know we will 
Because our hearts tell us so
