Today in Heritage History, March 4, 1924, the song, Happy Birthday to You, is published by Clayton Sunny. The revised edition that adds the stanza, “You-look-like-a-monkey-and-you-act-like-one-tooo”, was published the following year in 1925 on Claydon’s birthday by his (then) estranged wife Bunny, after a bitter and protracted divorce settlement.
