Fun Birthday Song for children’s or elderly Music Therapy Group by Margie La Bella of Music Therapy Tunes

This was a spontaneous, group song that happened during a group instrumental “jam.”

The teacher called out “It’s Luke’s Birthday today” while we were playing “Skinamarink” for Valentine’s day.

We suddenly joined in (WITH Luke’s permission!!) a verse of a birthday version of the old standard.  It went like this:

G

Skinamarinky dinky dink. Skinarmarinky duke.

G………….. Am

We love Luke.   (Rhyme likewise for other people’s names.)

Am…………….. D7……………. Am……………….. D7

Skinamarinky dinky dink. Skinarmarinky duke.

AmD7….G…G7

We love Luke.

G……………………………………………….G7

We love you in the morning and in the afternoon.

C………………………………….A7………………….D7

Happy happy birthday underneath the moon!

G…………………………………………………………E7

Skinamarinky dinky dink. Skinarmarinky duke.

A7…D7….G

We love Luke.
