Rockin' Robin Lyrics by Michael Jackson


Michael Jackson Lyrics

Rockin' Robin Lyrics
He rocks in the tree top all the day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birds down Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

[Chorus:]
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Go rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight


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 singin' go bird go!

[Chorus]
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Go rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight

[musical interlude]

Pretty little raven at the bird bandstand
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand
They started going steady and a-bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole!

He rocks in the tree top all the day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birdies down Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet!

[Chorus]
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Go rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight


Pretty little raven at the bird bandstand
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand
They started going steady and a-bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole!

He rocks in the tree top all the day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birdies down Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet!

[Chorus]
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Rockin' robin, tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Go rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight
