Happy Birthday Song in Italian (with Lyrics & English Translation)

Is your Italian friend getting ready to celebrate a birthday? Then you may want to serenade him or her on the big day with the Happy Birthday song in Italian!

The Italian version of this song is called Tanti Auguri a Te, which literally translates as Many Wishes to You. Tanti auguri! is one of two expressions used to wish someone a Happy Birthday, with the other being Buon Compleanno!

The tune is identical to the English version and the lyrics are more or less a direct translation. Check out the YouTube video below to hear it sung by a native Italian!
