"Sto lat" is a Polish birthday song. It's also sung at weddings, for name days and at other celebrations.

"The phrase 'Sto lat!' is also often used to wish someone longevity or good fortune, or as a toast, without the song. However, the use of 'Sto lat!' in this manner will often lead to the song being sung by those present. The phrase is also sometimes used to acknowledge someone's sneezing – similarly to 'God bless you', though for that particular occasion a simple na zdrowie ('To your health') is more frequently used." -Wikipedia

Notes

At the end of the song, especially when it's a child's birthday, the group will shout "a kto?" (who?) and then they shout out the birthday kid's name.
