Three Little Birds #MusicMonday

By | September 2, 2013

Today’s Music Monday has lovely memories for me, it’s the song that D sung at school in their Proms week. School gave us a DVD of her singing it in class too and it’s too cute!

The video above ranks very highly in the cuteness stakes too, lovely imagery and friendships portrayed.

D is over excited about a trip scheduled for tomorrow, mixed with a few anxieties, the result is a very over-wrung girl today. We found this though and she’s enjoying watching it, it’s bringing back good thoughts for her. She loved it when the music teacher referred to Bob Marley as "Uncle Bob" when he was teaching her the song and accompanying her on the guitar.

The lyrics are very relevant to us most days too:

"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’,
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 ’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."
Singin’: "Don’t worry about a thing, oh no!
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!

Oh wow what a lovely version of this song. I don’t usually like cover versions but I recognised Connie from BGT – what a voice! Can only imagine how emotional it was to watch D singing this 🙂

Fantastic choice for Music Monday Jeannette 🙂
