Parabéns a você
Nesta data querida
Muitos anos de vida
Hoje é dia de festa
Cantam as nossas almas
Para o menino/a [name]
Uma salva de palmas
Hoje o/a [name] faz anos
Porque Deus assim quis

Do que a Vida contém

How to say Happy Birthday in Portuguese
You can say Happy Birthday as “Parabéns” or “Felicidades”. Both mean something like “Congratulations” and both can also be used in other situations when you want to congratulate someone – like when a baby is born, for example.
How to say your age
If someone asks you “Quantos anos tens?”, you should know they are asking you “How old are you”, or literally “How many years do you have?”.
We use the verb to have instead of to be for saying our age, so you should answer:
“Tenho ____(insert your age) years.”
This literally means “I have _____ years”, as in “I have collected so many years until now”… See the idea?
Since we are at it, you can see here how to conjugate the verb to have – TER in Portuguese – in the Present tense:
Ele/ Ela/ Você tem
Eles/ Elas têm
Ex: “Eu tenho 20 anos” – I am 20 years old.
” Ele tem 30 anos” – He is 30 years old.
TER is an irregular verb, like SER and ESTAR. There are many regular verbs and you can also find out how to conjugate them, by clicking here. If you also want to check verbs with prepositions, make sure to go here.
