Dutch Birthday Song and Dutch Birthday Song Lyrics

(The tune is very different from the traditional Happy Birthday song in English)

Lang zal ze/hij leven
Lang zal ze/hij leven,
Lang zal ze/hij leven,
Lang zal ze/hij leven,
In de gloria,
In de gloria,
In de gloria,
Hip, hip, hip, hoera!
Hip, hip, hip, hoera!
Hip, hip, hip, hoera!
Long shall she/he live
Long shall she/he live
Long shall she/he live
Long shall she/he live
In the gloria
In the gloria
In the gloria
Hip, hip, hip, Hooray
Hip, hip, hip, Hooray
Hip, hip, hip, Hooray

The Dutch have several traditional songs for birthdays, but this is one of the fun ones. Make sure to give the birthday celebrant 3 air-kisses when you greet them & say Congratulations or GEFELICITEERD.

And for even more fun, the last line can be repeated over and over to match the age of the person whose birthday is being celebrated. I hope that somebody is keeping count!

Remember to throw your hands up in the air at the end when you sing Hip, hip, hip, hoera!
