[Verse 1]
I heard a robin this morning,
I’m feeling happy today
Goin’ to pack my care in a whistle,
And blow them all away. What if I’ve been unlucky,
Really haven’t a thing,
There’s a time I always feel happy,
As happy as a king.

[Verse 2]
Tho’ rain may fall in the evening,
Ans rain may fall in the night
When the robin sings in the morning,
I know the sun is bright.
I keep still when I hear him,
Singin’ up in a tree,
For the little angel of gladness,
Brings happiness to me.

When the red, red, robin comes bob, bob, bobbin’ along,
There’lll be no more sobbin’
When he starts throbbin’ his old sweet song,
Wake up, wake up you sleepyhead,
Get up, get up, get out of bed, Cheer up, cheer up, the sun is red,
Live, Love, laugh and be happy,
What if I’ve been blue nowI’m walkin’ through fields of flow’rs,
Rain may glisten but still I listen for hours and hours.
I’m just a kid again doin’ what I did again singing a song
When the red, red, robin in comes bob, bobbin’ a long.
When the long.
