[Intro]

C         Bb         Am         G   F 
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]

       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
       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

C#         B
Happy     birthday
           Bbm
Happy     birthday
       G#
Happy birthday

Ooh yeah


[Outro]

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



(I'm not quite sure with the chords of the chorus,
wheter it is just one chord.
You might add an F at the end.
You might play it totally different: C and am alternating.
Try it out. :)
