Happy Birthday sung in Swedish

I was left a very nice voicemail this morning as Ms W and her friends called me singing Happy Birthday in Swedish. Very nice. Its different from the English but Happy Birthday in Swedish translates to:

Yes, may you (he, she, they) live, Yes, may you (he, she, they) live,
Yes, may you (he, she, they) live for a hundred years.
Yes, may you (he, she, they) live, Yes, may you (he, she, they) live,
Yes, may you (he, she, they) live for a hundred years.
 
Oh sure, you (he, she, they) will live, Oh sure, you (he, she, they) will live,
Oh sure, you (he, she, they) will live for a hundred years.
Oh sure, you (he, she, they) will live, Oh sure, you (he, she, they) will live,
Oh sure, you (he, she, they) will live for a hundred years.
 
“A four fold cheer … cheer for you (him,her, them). HURRAH, HURRAH, HURRAH, HURRAH.”

and the Swedish version

Ja, må du (han,hon, dom) leva, Ja, må du (han,hon, dom) leva,
Ja, må du (han,hon, dom) leva uti hundrade år.
Ja, må du (han,hon, dom) leva, Ja, må du (han,hon, dom) leva,
Ja, må du (han,hon, dom) leva uti hundrade år.
 
Ja, visst ska du (han, hon, dom) leva, Ja, visst ska du (han, hon, dom) leva,
Ja, visst ska du (han, hon, dom) leva uti hundrade år.
Ja, visst ska du (han, hon, dom) leva, Ja, visst ska du (han, hon, dom) leva,
Ja, visst ska du (han, hon, dom) leva uti hundrade år.
 
“Ett fyraldigt leve… leve du (han, hon, dom). HURRAH, HURRAH, HURRAH, HURRAH.”

Anyway I have a flight to catch, ciao for now as they say in Llandow.
