10 Happy Birthday Songs in Spanish

Singing Happy Birthday in Spanish is just more fun!

What’s the most important part of any birthday party? The cake, singing happy birthday, and blowing out the candles, of course! (And, um, the presents!)

Last summer we were at a birthday party for a friend whose dad is Peruvian, and all the Spanish speakers at the party broke out in a Spanish birthday song. It was so much more fun and energetic than the English version, and so special for the birthday girl to have Happy Birthday sung in two different languages.

There are many happy birthday songs in Spanish, and I’m sharing several different ones from YouTube.

Pick your favorite, and go ahead and sing Happy Birthday in Spanish at your next birthday party. The birthday kid (and everyone else) will love it for sure!

Note: I found this really cool offering for your birthday boy or girl!  A native Spanish-speaking musician will produce a personalized video with three ways to sing the Feliz Cumpleaños song in Spanish with your child’s name for $12.

Note: Even though you sing Cumpleaños Feliz in Spanish, when you just wish someone a happy birthday, you say Feliz Cumpleaños.

Happy Birthday Singalong in Spanish – Cumpleaños Feliz

Here is an upbeat singalong version of the Happy Birthday song in Spanish, Cumpleaños Feliz.

It includes karaoke-style lyrics, which is pretty cool. Kids will love the dance beat.

Happy Birthday (Spanish Version – No lyrics)

This rendition of Happy Birthday in Spanish is really cute! It features upbeat piano music and kids’ voices singing Cumpleaños Feliz.

However, unlike the last video, it does not include all of the lyrics. Therefore, I have included them below.

Cumpleaños feliz lyrics

Cumpleaños feliz
Cumpleaños feliz
Te deseamos todos
Cumpleaños feliz

Es tu día y por eso es especial
Tus amigos vendrán a celebrar
Es tu cumple, por eso estamos aquí
Que los cumplas muy feliz

Cumpleaños feliz
Cumpleaños feliz
Te deseamos todos
Cumpleaños feliz

 

Birthday Song – Mexican Mariachi Style

Whenever I hear a mariachi band playing, it brings me back to my Los Angeles days when I’d walk by a birthday party at a park and hear a mariachi band playing. I loved it – in fact, I’d love to get a mariachi band for our next birthday party!

This birthday song in Spanish features great mariachi music – Enjoy!

 

Las Mañanitas

Las Mañanitas is a traditional Mexican birthday song, usually sung early in the morning to wake up the birthday person.

This video by Nick Jr. has the Spanish song with lyrics first, followed by the English song with lyrics.

The English translation is not a traditional translation, but is still really cute for kids.

Here are the lyrics, in case you want to sing it without watching through the video.

Las mañanitas lyrics

Estas son las mañanitas
que cantaba el rey David.
Hoy por ser tu cumpleaños
te las cantamos a ti.

Despierta, mi bien, despierta
mira que ya amaneció.
Ya los pajaritos cantan,
la luna ya se metió.

 

Cumpleaños Feliz

This is a fun cartoon version of the Spanish birthday song that kids will love. It doesn’t include the lyrics, but it’s really upbeat and they’ll love the animated story that goes with it.

 

Cumpleaños Feliz – Greeting card version

This is a very short and traditional take on the Happy Birthday song in Spanish. It has the added benefit of being appropriate to send to someone as a virtual birthday card!

 

Cumpleaños Feliz by Parchis

This video is definitely showing its age, but is still a super fun birthday song in Spanish. Sung by Parchis, a children’s music group from Spain that were really popular in the 1980s, it features kids singing and dancing to a non-traditional take on Cumpleaños Feliz.

Cumpleaños Feliz by Parchis lyrics

Cumpleaños feliz
Cumpleaños feliz
Te deseamos todos
Cumpleaños feliz
 
Desde el dia que naciste
Has sido siempre y serás
Una dicha para todos
De inmensa felicidad
 
Tu fiesta de cumpleaños
la vamos a celebrar
Unidos a tu familia
Todos vamos a cantar
 
Cumpleaños feliz
Cumpleaños feliz
Te desean tus amigos de Parchis
Cumpleaños feliz
Cumpleaños feliz
Te desean tus amigos de Parchis
Cumpleaños feliz
Cumpleaños feliz
Te desean tus amigos de Parchis
Cumpleaños feliz
Cumpleaños feliz
Todos te deseamos cumpleaños feliz
 
Venimos para alegrarte
Para hacerte muy feliz
Unidos a tanta dicha
Y felicitarte a ti
 
Despues con mucha alegría
Vamos juntos a jugar
Y cuando soples tus velas
Todos vamos a cantar
 
Cumpleaños feliz…

Cumpleaños Feliz – Peppa Pig

When I came across this version of Happy Birthday in Spanish, I couldn’t help but include it in the list. I have two huge Peppa Pig fans who had a Peppa birthday cake at their last birthday party. This would have been the perfect accompaniment.

 

Cumpleaños Feliz – Reggaeton version

This one seems to get lots of laughs in the comments. This is admittedly not the best Spanish birthday song out there, but might be worth a look if you have any Daddy Yankee fans.

 

Un año más en tu vida

As I think I’ve listed enough traditional Spanish birthday songs, here is a completely different birthday song called Un Año Más en tu Vida. You and your kids will love the fun beat of this song.

Un año más en tu vida lyrics

Un año más en tu vida,
otro lleno de esperanza
que el señor te de alegría
y traiga paz a tu alma.

Para mí siempre es lo mismo,
un año menos, un año más…
por eso yo te deseo hoy
en tu día felicidad…

Hay que noche tan preciosa,
es la noche de tu día
todos llenos de alegría
en esta fecha natal,
tus más íntimos amigos
que esta noche te acompañan
te saludan y desean un mundo de felicidad,
yo por mi parte deseo lleno de luz este día
todos llenos de alegría en fecha natal
y que esa luna plateada brille su luz para ti,
y ruego a Dios porque pases un cumpleaños feliz
y ruego a Dios porque pases un cumpleaños feliz.

Cumpleaños feliz te deseamos a ti..
Cumpleaños cumpleaños cumpleaños feliz…

Cumpleaños feliz,
te deseamos a ti
cumpleaños cumpleaños cumpleaños feliz..
cumpleaños feliz
te deseamos a ti
cumpleaños cumpleaños cumpleaños feliz!

Yo te daré te daré una cosa
te daré una cosa una cosa que yo solo sé..
Yo te daré te daré una cosa
te daré una cosa una cosa que yo solo sé.

Now go celebrate!
