How Many Times? (lyrics)

By Michael Ryther and William John Wisely, Jr.

How many times has the Earth gone ‘round the sun
The Earth gone ‘round the sun
The Earth gone ‘round the sun
How many times has the earth gone ‘round the sun
Since the day you were born?

You get one year older when the Earth goes ‘round the sun
And every year we throw a party when your birthday comes
So let’s eat two cakes and let’s have twice the fun
It’s the day you were born!

How many times has the Earth gone ‘round the sun
The Earth gone ‘round the sun
The Earth gone ‘round the sun
How many times has the earth gone ‘round the sun
Since the day you were born?

Every year the Earth goes ‘round the sun in outer space
It’s a journey that takes 365 days
So can you count the times the Earth has circled the sun
Since the day you were born

How many times has the Earth gone ‘round the sun
The Earth gone ‘round the sun
The Earth gone ‘round the sun
How many times has the earth gone ‘round the sun
Since the day you were born?

Isn’t life a miracle being who you are
You are a miracle like the planets and the stars
Isn’t life a miracle…happy birthday, happy birthday to you!
