Rockin’ Robin (Spring in Washington, DC) | Ukulele Mele’s Music - lanikai-beach.net

Mele Fong and her husband Richard Tom – The Hawaiian Serenaders – sing and play Rockin’ on and u-bass over photos of springtime , when we lived there from 1994-2000 (words below). #playuke #ukulelemusic

Mele’s arrangement of Rockin’ Robin is in F with I Wanna Chuck Strum for ‘ukulele.

This popular song was the only Top 40 Hit recorded by Bobby Day in 1958, whose sound was a hybrid of pop, rhythm, and blues. His innocent, upbeat songs were a great fit for Michael Jackson, whose 1972 recording of Rockin’ Robin went to Number 2 in the U.S.

Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on jaybird street

Ev’ry little swallow, ev’ry chick-a-dee
Ev’ry little bird in the tall oak tree

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
