Rockin’ Robin


Jimmie Thomas (Leon René), 1958 (copyright not renewed)

Tweedl-ee, deedle-ee dee, Tweedl-ee, deedle-ee dee, (repeat)
Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet

Verse 1
He rocks in the treetop all day long,
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song,
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet.

Rockin’ robin, (tweet tweet tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet, tweedl-ee dee)
Go Rockin’ Robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet, tweedl-ee dee)

Verse 2
Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree
The wise old owl, the big black crow
Flappin’ their wings sayin’ go bird, go. Refrain

A pretty little raven at the bird bandstand
Taught him how to do the bopping’, it was grand
They started goin’ steady and, bless my soul,
He out-bopped the buzzard and oriole (repeat Verse 1 and Refrain)
