Happy Birthday in Greek

My oldest son turned 6 last week. We put signs all over the house that wrote Hronia Polla( Many years). We made a special dinner of his favorite meal, orzo and bread ( kritheraki and psomi). After the cake we sang Happy Birthday in English and then in Greek.

Greek Phonetics English
Na zisis Gavrilli kai xronia polla long may you live and many years
megalos na ginis may grow old
me aspra mallia with white hair
pantou na skorpizis may you spread out everywhere
tis gnosis to fos the light of knowledge
kai oli na lene and everyone will say
na enas sofos there he is a wise man
