Tra la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy birthday, number three
Tra la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy birthday number three

Today's the day we've waited for
Because you're not a baby anymore
You've grown into the prettiest toddler we'll ever see
Happy birthday number three

What happened to that funny face
Our little angel now wears full ups and lace
We can't believe our eyes you're such a parent's dream
Happy birthday number three

When you were only one you couldn't hold a bottle
Then at eighteen months you began to waddle
When you were two years you could barely say a word
But since you've grown up your future is sewn up
From now on you're gonna be heard so

If we should smile with sweet surprise
It's just that you've grown up before our very eyes
You've grown into the prettiest toddler we'll ever see
Happy birthday number three

When you were only one you couldn't hold a bottle
Then at eighteen months you began to waddle
When you were two years you could barely say a word
But since you've grown up your future is sewn up
From now on you're gonna be heard so

If we should smile with sweet surprise
It's just that you've grown up before our very eyes
You've grown into the prettiest toddler we'll ever see
Happy birthday number three

Tra la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy birthday number three
Tra la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy birthday number three

Here comes the cake everybody
Happy birthday number three
Make a wish and blow at those candles
Number three
Here comes the balloons, don't burst them

Tra la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy birthday number three
Tra la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
