🎶👯Got exposed to another group of waitresses singing “Happy Birthday to You” to a diner. It started out in the key of D and looked promising, but then they hit that high note just before they say the person’s name and dropped into something like B-flat.

For the record, I think the birthday song needs to be changed. I suggest Rabbit Ain’t GotIt shares it’s melody with Mary Had a Little Lamb, a tune most people can carry in some form. Basically, everyone surrounds the birthday person and sing this song instead. Do it seven times or whenever you end p yelling rather thann singing, as each repetition gets a bit louder. It’s easier on everybody with the same amount of awkward.
