Impress your new serbian friends – Learn their “Happy Birthday” song

If you ever have the chance to come to Serbia you might be eventually invited to a birthday party. Everything will be familiar to you except their “happy birthday” song. It has neither the same words in serbian nor the same melody. I am offering you the lyrics but unfortunately I couldn’t find the melody on the Internet but you can always ask Suncica and Sonja tu sing it a capella for you :)

There it goes:

Danas nam je,

divan dan (x3)

Našem (m) / Našoj (f) _________ (name of your friend– in dative case)


Živeo (m)/ Živela (f) x2

Srećan nam bio (m)/bila (f)

Živeo! (m) / Živela! (f)
