A couple of students have asked me about it and I have no idea what they were talking about. So I did some research and found this. In fact, one student showed me a clip of this song being sung by his friends. Towards the end, there was a nice transition into a standard birthday song, Happy Birthday to you. And actually, today is my cat’s birthday, or rather the day we first met.
So, Sundae, happy birthday to you, may you live long, have a lot of fish, a lot of snuggles, and a lot of love. ^_^
Hâi chôhk dee sù khĕe wan kèrd
May you have a good luck and a happy birthday.
Sìng pràsèrt dai wăng tâng jai
Whichever precious things that you have wished for,
Hâi sùk sŏm dang făn fài
May you be blessed with them.
Jìt jàem săi thúk wan thúk kheun
May you be joyful every day and every night.
Hâi râm ruai ngern thorng yót sàk
May you be wealthy and mighty
Hâi khon rák mâak mee dàad dèun
May you have many admirers.
Tham sìng dai jong lú lûang râab rêun
May your plans be smooth sailing.
Aa yú yeun plòrd rôhk plòrd phai
May you live long and stay healthy.
