The traditional Buenos días song lyrics, which are in the videos above, go like this:

Buenos días, buenos días.
¿Cómo estás? ¿Cómo estás?
Muy bien, gracias, muy bien, gracias.
¿Y usted? ¿Y usted?

Buenos días, hoy es __________.
¿Cómo estás? ¿Cómo estás?
Muy bien, gracias, muy bien, gracias.
¿Y, usted? ¿Y, usted?
