"There are two versions of Selamat Ulang Tahun, the Indonesian Happy Birthday song. Many Indonesians will actually sing the English Happy Birthday song, but it would be nice to preserve the traditional ones. The two versions of the Indonesian song have a lot of the same lyrics, but are sung differently." -Innosanto

Notes

*This is just an Indonesian way of saying Happy Birthday.

Here's another translation of this song by Harri Saptadi:

"Selamat ulang tahun kami ucapkan,
selamat panjang umur kita 'kan doakan,
selamat sejahtera sehat sentosa,
selamat panjang umur dan bahagia."

"We chant you a happy anniversary,
we wish you a long live,
prosper, health, wealth,
long live and happy."
