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

Rockin' robin (Tweet x 3)
Rockin' robin (Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee)
Go rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight
(Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee)

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 singing go bird go

Rockin' robin (Tweet x 3)
Rockin' robin (Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee)
Go rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight
(Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee)

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

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

Rockin' robin (Tweet x 3)

Well, a pretty little raven at the bird bandstand
Taught him how to do the boppin', it was grand
He started going steady and bless my soul
He out-bopped the Buzzard and the Oriole

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

Rockin' robin, (tweet, tweet, tweet)

    The Unregistered that posted in January. Try listening to a recording instead of depending on a karaoke machine. On Bobby Day's recording he always says "blow," except the second time on the chorus. There it's "go." I'm not sure why, but it likely has something to do with the other birds saying "go, bird go" in the verse immediately preceding it.

    As for the bridge, I'm not sure where you got your lyrics, but they don't even fit the rhythm, not to mention there is clearly no word starting with s (one of the easiest sounds to hear on a recording). The first listing of the bridge is accurate based on listening to a recording - taught him how to do the bop -n- it was grand. I suppose that could be either "do the bop an' it was grand," or "do the boppin'; it was grand." I tend to think the former makes more sense.

    Either way, though, listen to a recording to judge what's accurate - a recording of Bobby Day, not some cover version, since this listing refers to him and his version.

    I love this song but the lyrics are messed up. It's suppose to be "a pretty little raven at the bird stand was talking bout the song, and the boppin was grand. He started going steady" Instead of "taught him how to boppin and it was grand." And to the person who said it's blow rockin robin. It IS go rockin robin. I have a karaoke machine and that's what it says. But besides that I love this song. Thanks for posting the lyrics. I know the song by heart. Since this is getting posted on January 1st I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! www.lyricsmode.com is where I will get my lyrics next time I need lyrics to a song. BTW I know what it means, I think. I think it means that original writer liked birds and was bored and decided to make up a story about them or it means my motto, let it go. Let it go means be free and fly. Go with the flow. Be free-sprited. And so on.or it could mean don't let anyone judge you. Be who you are. Don't care what other people think. Anyways, thx.
