With this Your Happy Birthday flip chart you’ll be able to fill in your own nonsense words! This song is a fun one to sing with it’s catchy phrase, “Zip-a-dee-ay and heigh-dee-ho” but you can swap out those silly words with your Primary’s own creative words.
Or grab the printable list we’ve gathered from other chorister’s willingness to share their made-up words! This is one fun Primary Birthday song to sing for special occasions!
Your Happy Birthday Flip Chart
After you print this 1-page printable flip chart, and slip it into a single sheet protector, you’ll be able to add your own silly phrase and make it different each time you sing it!
I store a list of the nonsense words on the back side of this printable so it’s easy to reference and then I just fill in the blank before we get started.
If it’s a first time using a new phrase, I’ll just change out one of them and say the phrase out loud before we begin, as they can be difficult to sound through the first time you are using them.
Your Happy Birthday Lyrics
This song is published in the Children’s Songbook Page #283
You can find the Your Happy Birthday sheet music here.
This month is such a special one;
It’s birthdaytime for you.
We’d really like to celebrate your happy day with you.
Zip-a-dee-ay* and heigh-dee-ho*
Here’s something we can do.
We’ll sing a song that we all know,
Happy Birthday to you!
*Can fill with alternate nonsense words!
Your Happy Birthday
