Music Patty Hill / Lyrics Mildred Hill
Harmonisation Anne Mirou
Joyeux Anniversaire (France), in English Happy Birthday to You is a song usually sung to celebrate a person’s birthday. The lyrics of that song have been translated into at least 18 languages.
The melody comes from Good Morning to All, a song for kids written and composed in 1893 by two sisters, Patty and Mildred Hill. They were both teachers at Little Loomhouse School in Louisville.
The two sisters composed Good Morning to All so that it could be an easy song to sing for young children.
