They Started Singing ‘Happy Birthday’ — One Change to the Lyrics Made His Jaw Drop

Sometimes the things you don’t see coming are the best things in life. They blindside us out of nowhere, showing us a new, happier, more fulfilling direction for our lives.

We might not have predicted when or how it happened, but we are made better by it.

And wouldn’t have it any other way.

Take this man, for example. It’s his birthday, and he has gathered his family together to celebrate his special day. Festive balloons float above him, and his family begins to sing “Happy Birthday” to him as they bring out the cake.

But one change to the lyrics makes his jaw drop in happy confusion. His reaction to the surprise is absolutely priceless, and will have you grinning from ear to ear!

Watch the incredibly heartwarming video below to see his endearing reaction.

We’re sure it will make your day!
