Late Joseon DynastyThree Little Birds

“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 perched by my doorstep

Singin’ sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true,

Saying’, (“This is my message to you-ou-ou:”)

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

perched by my doorstep

Singin’ sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true,

Sayin’, “This is my message to you-o-o-o:”

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!
