Bobby Day: Rockin’ Robin (1958) – Song Review

So recently I was on Facebook and I was looking in to many of the various Facebook groups that I belonged to, and some one had asked if anyone remembered the song, ‘Rockn’ Robin (1958) by Bobby Day…

Well I have known of this song for quite some time, as a matter of fact, it was one of the favorite songs that my acting teacher used to play for some of the excercises we used to do in class!

But until a couple of days ago, I will be honest and say that I had forgot about this vary popular song that has been covered many people including: ‘Michael Jackson’ and the, ‘Jackson Five!  Until I did this review, I hadn’t heard this song in many years! But the truth is, is it was and still is a fun song… I mean this song practically came out at the birth of rock ‘n roll, (long before the music genre became quite intense.)

But it has some great rythms that you can still dance to if you like, and it also is one of those songs that you can enjoy as well in the background!

If you haven’t heard of it though, check this out!  I think you are going to quite enjoy this!

And if you liked that, then I think you are going to enjoy the lyrics to, ‘Rockin’ Robin’ by Bobby Day from the album, ‘Rockin’ with Robin’!

He rocks in the treetops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet-tweet-tweet
Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
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 signin’ “go bird, go”
Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
A wordy little raven at the bird’s first dance
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 treetops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet-tweet-tweet
Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Well, the 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 treetops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet
Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
