Today is Special

Estas son las mañanitas, que cantaba el Rey David. Hoy por ser día de tu santo, te las cantamos a ti.

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

Que linda está la mañana en que vengo a saludarte. Venimos todos con gusto y placer a felicitarte.

Ya viene amaneciendo. Ya la luz del día nos dio. Levántate de mañana. Mira que ya amaneció.

Happy Birthday, amiga!

Explanation: this is the traditional Mexican birthday song. It is sung to the birthday honoree to awaken them, and the lyrics translate:

These are the little mornings (psalms) that were sung by King David, today for being day of your saint we sing them to you. Wake up my love, wake up, look that sunrise has come, already the litttle birds sing, the moon already has set. How pretty is the morning that I come on to greet you. We come all with gladness and pleasure to congratulate you. Already comes the sunrise already the light of day has touched us. Get up this morning, and see that sunrise has come.
