    In French from Quebec city

    Bon anniversaire
    Le temps passera
    Comme la rivière qui coule là-bas
    Bon anniversaire
    Le temps te laissera
    Quelques rides au front qui t’embelliront.

    Happy birthday
    The time will pass
    As the river which flows over there
    Happy birthday
    The time will leave you
    Some wrinkles in the forehead which will embellish you.

    Thanks, thanks
