The Birthday Song (also named The Birthday Candle Dance) is a song from the Season Two episode "Blue's Birthday" and the Season Five episode "Joe's Surprise Party". This song was used instead of the traditional song "Happy Birthday to You". Its lyrics were changed in the Blue's Clues & You! episode, Happy Birthday, Blue!.


Blue's Clues

Have a happy birthday, you!
We'll have a great day too!
Everybody play,
It's Blue's special day!
Happy birthday!

Joe's Surprise Party

Have a Happy Birthday, You

We'll Have a Great Day, Too!

Everybody Play, It's Joe's Special Day...

Happy Birthday!

Blue's Clues & You!

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday, Blue/you!
Happy birthday to YOU!
