Lyrics

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


  • Chorus :
  • Rockin' robin, rock rock
  • Rockin' robin'
  • Blow 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 singing go bird go


  • Chorus :
  • Rockin' robin, rock rock
  • Rockin' robin'
  • Blow rockin' robin
  • 'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight


  • Pretty little raven at the bird-band stand
  • Told them how to do the bop and it was grand
  • They started going steady and bless my soul
  • He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriol


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


  • Chorus :
  • Rockin' robin, rock rock
  • Rockin' robin'
  • Blow rockin' robin
  • 'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight
