Watch the video where you’ll see the kid play Happy Birthday on ukulele. This little chapie named Lance at 4 years old “and that’s no typo” he is only 4 years old, entertains us in a skillful manner. He strums the chords while singing the happy birthday song in 6 different languages.

Lance Plays Happy Birthday On Ukulele

If it’s your birthday, and your language is included here, Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish or Tagalog then enjoy Lance’s version of the birthday song. Or on the other hand, if you know someone who’s birthday is coming up, then why not send them this link on their birthday as a little surprise.

I have found out from comments on the video, where Lance is from and it appears to be the  Philippines. The main language of the area is Tagalog and yes he does sing that version to!

So just out of interest, I did a search for how we would write happy birthday in little lance’s native tongue. Well, I have found out exactly and even more useful phrase into the bargain, see below.

Maligayang kaarawan = (Happy Birthday)
Maligayang bati sa iyong kaarawan = (Happy/Joyful/Merry Wishes on your Birthday)
Nawa’y pagpalain ka ng Diyos ng marami pang kaarawan = (May God bless you with many more birthdays to come)

For lots more Tagalog with conversions into English, visit the site for happy birthday phrases and more.

The next lesson for those who are regular visitors to this site and attempting to learn the Happy Birthday chords, here is your next lesson. Once you have mastered  playing the Happy Birthday Ukulele chords, start learning to play and sing it in another language. I’m sure you know someone who speaks another language apart from English, don’t you think this would make a most unusual present for them on their next birthday celebration.

You will find a great many more languages at the above site other than Tagalog. I’m sure you could manage a rendering in whatever language you choose.

Well done little Lance, give us more. When your birthday arrives and I know that it might seem like ages for a young lad like you, Maligayang kaarawan. Even, Nawa’y pagpalain ka ng Diyos ng marami pang kaarawan and I’m sure that I’m speaking for the great many people from all around the world, who have enjoyed your rendering of happy birthday on ukulele.
