In this same year the song was published in the songbook Song Stories for the Kindergarten. The song proved to be very popular and underwent some small changes to lyrics over time, though always based upon a greeting song for either teachers to students, or changed from students to teachers.
Set up a circle of numbers on the ground and have everyone stand on a number. Begin playing festive music and have everyone walk from number to number. Draw a number from a hat and then stop the music. Whoever is standing on that number when the music stops is the winner! I have played this game at many school carnivals where the prize is a cake. But, you can give away something different.
Happy Birthday To You, the birthday song heard the world over, is actually protected by copyright. Quite how they manage to enforce this is beyond me for such a massive worldwide song. Apparently the birthday song brings in around $2 million a year in royalties from publishing rights (which is owned now by Summy-Birchard, a company under the AOL Time Warner umbrella who paid $25 million for the company which was then called Birch Tree and then changed to Summy-Birch).
