The Free Birthday Song

This song was written in celebration of Richard Stallman's birthday. It follows the same tune as the Free Software Song: the Bulgarian folk song Sadi moma bela loza.

Happy birthday, Dr. Stallman
Set us free, Stallman, set us free
Happy birthday, Dr. Stallman
Set us free, Stallman, set us free.

I used to use non-free software
Sadly true, Stallman, sadly true
But now I use software libre
Learned from you, Stallman, learned from you.

Spread free software to the planet
We'll help too, Stallman, we'll help too
One day software will be libre
For the world, Stallman, shared with you.

Happy birthday, Dr. Stallman
Set us free, Stallman, set us free
Happy birthday, Dr. Stallman
Set us free, Stallman, set us free.
