When the Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin' Along
written by Harry Woods part of "The Jolson Story",
and recorded by Al Jolson has also been recorded by Mandy Patinkin
When the red, red robin comes bob, bob bobbin' along, along,
There'll be no more sobbing when he starts throbbing His own sweet song.
Wake up, wake up, you sleepy head,
Get up, get up, get out of bed,
Cheer up, cheer up the sun is red,
Live, love, laugh and be happy.
What if I've been blue,
Now I'm walking through fields of flowers,
Rain may glisten, but I still listen for hours and hours.
I'm just a kid again, doing what I did again, singing a song,
When the red, red robin comes bob, bob bobbin' along.
