Arabic Birthday Song and Arabic Birthday Song Lyrics
(Add "cha cha cha" after each line- tune is the same as traditional Happy Birthday song in English)

Sana Helwa ya Gameel (cha cha cha)
Sana Helwa ya Gameel (cha cha cha)
Sana Helwa, Sana Helwa
Sana Helwa ya Gameel (cha cha cha)

Sana Helwa ya Gameel (cha cha cha)
Sana Helwa ya Gameel (cha cha cha)
Sana Helwa, Sana Helwa
Sana Helwa ya Gameel (cha cha cha)

Usually this verse is sung twice and then
the English version of Happy Birthday
is sung twice - including the
"cha cha cha".

Happy Birthday Oh Beautiful One,
Happy Birthday Oh Beautiful One,
Happy Birthday, Happy birthday,
HappyBbirthday Oh Beautiful One.

Happy Birthday Oh Beautiful One,
Happy Birthday Oh Beautiful One,
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday,
Happy Birthday Oh Beautiful One.

Sana Helwa actually means sweet or
wonderful year, but it is interpreted
also as an Arabic greeting for
"Happy Birthday".

The celebration of birthdays is a modern innovation in many areas and many older people may not even know their birthday. However the younger generation celebrates more and more each year.
The Egyptian version, which is also used by Palestinians and differs slightly from other Arabic versions. Nevertheless, you can make a good impression singing "Sana Helwa ya Gameel". Don't forget the "cha cha cha".

Some people want to celebrate a child's first birthday and make it to be big and unique and invite many friends and Family (even as many as 80 people like a wedding party).

Afterthe child's 1st birthday, parties are generally smaller and include family and a few close friends - usually fewer than 15 people. Entertainment is usually music from a CD or an Ipod, the kids dancing and then cake, food and beverages. Then, cha cha cha, blowing out the candle and the most important.
