Song Lyric Sunday: Worrying – ‘Three Little Birds’

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, as proposed by the illustrious Fandango, is all about matters of concern. Well, who would have thought it?

The title of this Bob Marley song may not be familiar, but you will have definitely have heard it before many times. The title was apparently inspired by three little birds that would fly and sit next to his home – no doubt while he was looking for inspiration for a title of a new song he was writing.

“Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Rise up this mornin’
Smile with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin’, (“This is my message to you-ou-ou”)

Singin’: “Don’t worry ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right”
Singin’: “Don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Rise up this mornin’
Smiled with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin’, “This is my message to you-ou-ou:”

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don’t worry!”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing” – I won’t worry!
“‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right”

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right”
I won’t worry!
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right”
Singing: “Don’t worry about a thing (Don’t worry about a thing)
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Written by Bob Marley
