In Lima , Peru people often sing "Happy Birthday" first in English in a really slow tone and with somber faces, and then swop over to Spanish with hand-clapping and at twice the speed: - "Feliz cumpleaños a ti, feliz cumpleaños a ti, feliz cumpleaños querido Ron, feliz cumpleaños a ti!"

Words in Mexican and Peruvian slang (yet not in all Latin American countries)
chamba - work
chela (cerveza) - beer
