 [INTRO]

   C Bb Am G x2
 . 
 [VERSE ONE]
               C
 You know it doesn't make much sense
                 Bb
 There ought to be a law against
      Am
 Anyone who takes offense
    G
 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
 To show just how much we love you

         F 
 And I'm sure you would agree
               G
 It couldn't fit more perfectly
          F                          Gsus4 G
 Than to have a world party on the day you came to be

 [VERSE TWO]
         C             F C
 I just never understood
        Bb
 How a man who died for good
              Am
 Could not have a day that would
     G 
 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
 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
             Gsus4 G

 The time is overdue

 For people like me and you

 Is love and unity to all God's children

           C 
 It should be a great event

 And the whole day should be spent
      Am
 In full remembrance
       G
 Of those who lived and died for the oneness of all people

 [OUTRO]

 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

 Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

 Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

 Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

 Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

 Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

 Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday

 Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday
