The "happy birthday" song

Before I start, I've looked on Wikipedia and the article which would theoretically answer my question is a minor disaster area, so I'm trusting you people again (doesn't it make you feel special?).

What I'm after are the lyrics to the "Happy birthday to you" song as it would be sung in any of Turkish (first choice), Arabic or Hebrew (transliterated in both cases). One of my lecturers is a specialist in the Middle East and has a birthday coming up, so I thought this would be a nice surprise.

[And no, I'm not going to sing it. That wouldn't be a nice surprise. I'll send it in an Email]
