Children – Birthday Candles lyrics

How many candles
Will the birthday girl/boy take?
How many candles
On her/his birthday cake?

(Then choose one of the following verses,
Adapted as necessary to fit the child's age)

Three, or four?
Then one more!
Five little candles
On her/his birthday cake!

Three, or four?
Not one more!
Four little candles
On her/his birthday cake!

Six, or seven
Will he take?
Seven little candles
On her/his birthday cake!

One, or two?
That will do!
Two little candles
On her/his birthday cake!
