Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying, (this is my message to you)

Singing don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing don't worry (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
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying, this is my message to you

Singing 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

Singing don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright, I won't worry
Singing, don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright




Singing don't worry (worry) about a thing, oh no
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Nonsense

We unlike the DISRESPECTFUL VIDEO that displays a #RASTAFARIAN MAN as a Pig in what is being claimed as the official video

Bob Marley wouldn’t eat, touch, or portray himself as a pig it’s VEHEMENTLY against that is good & Holy to the man & to Rastafarian’s the world over

Could only be done by a Whyte cultural appropriator because they DONT truly KNOW & RESPECT the CULTURE yet seek to claim OWNERSHIP and RIGHTS to it .. !!!

The CAU-CACITY of it all
