Tinker Jack sent me this Hungarian birthday song on my birthday! I was touched by such a nice thought. Here's what he wrote:

"Hi Lisa,

Happy Birthday to you! For this occasion I would like to send you a traditional Hungarian Birthday song. It is also sung traditionally for Mother's Day. Its text is definitely a bit archaic, so I also tried to translate it in that style. In the Hungarian language we do not have any separate personal pronouns for the third person singular. We do not have 'she' or 'he'."

The version of this song in the video below is a little different from the lyrics above. In the video they sing about green grass that is neatly dressed. In the version above it's a rose flower.
Please let us know if you think this video has been taken down by YouTube.
