Happy long life to you,
One seventy five!
You've lived long dear Harriet,
Happy birthday to you!

Green beans and celery,
pink hibiscus cake,
Have a party dear Harriet,
Happy birthday to you!

You've come a long way,
from Galapagos,
You've been around dear Harriet,
Happy birthday to you!

Rise and fall of empires,
One world war and two,
You've seen much dear Harriet,
Happy birthday to you!

When life is threatened,
When nature is lost,
You bear a flag dear Harriet,
Happy birthday to you!

May we protect your kind,
For the sake of conscience,
We love you dear Harriet,
Happy birthday to you!

I wish I were you,
At peace with the world,
Happy birthday dear Harriet,
I wish I were you!

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear Harriet,
Happy birthday to you!

Wishing Harriet the tortoise a very happy 175th birthday!
