  • "Don't worry about a thing
    'Cause every little thing gonna be alright
    Singing' "Don't worry about a thing
    'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!"

    Rise up this mornin'
    Smiled with the risin' sun
    Three little birds
    Pitch by my doorstep
    Singin' sweet songs
    Of melodies pure and true
    Saying', ("This is my message to you")

    Singing' "Don't worry 'bout a thing
    'Cause every little thing gonna be alright."
    Singing' "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing
    'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!"

    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"

    Singin' "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
    Every little thing gonna be alright. Don't worry!"
    Singin' "Don't worry about a thing" I won't worry!
    "'Cause every little thing gonna be alright."

    Singin' "Don't worry about a thing
    'Cause every little thing gonna be alright" I won't worry!
    Singin' "Don't worry about a thing
    Cause every little thing gonna be alright."
    Singin' "Don't worry about a thing, oh no!
    'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!
