Here's the story behind this one.

[The upload server wasn't working when I tried to post this, so I lost everything I previously wrote and was forced to totally write this somewhat description again.]

At one point not too long ago, someone amidst a local assembly had a birthday. My friends knew I know how to play the piano, so they volunteered me to play "Happy Birthday." Regretfully, I had to tell everyone that I hadn't memorized "Happy Birthday," so I never ended up playing.

Later that week (and in future weeks, too), I searched the internet for a suitable arrangement of "Happy Birthday" that would work well as a piano accompaniment, but alas, there was none to be found. Thus, I set to work on this song.

I've placed it in the public domain, so you don't have to go through what *I* went through. Feel free to edit it, print it, learn it, or do whatever you want to it--no credit necessary.

What??? Is this copyrighted??? Please!! The next thing will be to find out that "Barney the dinosaur" owns the copyright of "Yankee Doodle." A conspiracy??
Well it doesn't surprise me that you did another great arrangement. Keep it up! Who says short isn't awesome?
YAY! Good job, as usual, ninja!
My friend arranged "Happy Birthday" for a music project last year. Your version is excellent!
actually, it's hard to believe but the song "happy birthday" is still under copyright. nice arrangement though.
I can't believe it. Who has the copyright? *googles it*
Clayton F. Summy Company. Huh. Didn't know that.
It's funny because I recently arranged happy birthday for guitar (my dad), ukelele (my mom), piano (me), and kazoo (my little sisters primary instrument). this is a good arrangement though!
