Happy Birthday to the Happy Birthday Songstress

Happy Birthday to the Happy Birthday Songstress

Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday, dear special one.
Happy birthday to you!

Kentucky kindergarten and Sunday school teacher Mildred J. Hill composed this familiar ditty in the late 19th century. Originally, she tagged the tune as “Good Morning to All.”

Her younger sister Patty, who also taught kindergarten, helped with the “Happy Birthday” lyrics. The two sisters were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (posthumously) in 1996 for their accomplishment.

Happy birthday, Mildred Hill!
