8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I heard a robin this morning, I'm feeling happy today,
Goin' to pack my cares in a whistle, And Blow them all away.
What if I've been unlucky, Really haven't a thing,
There's a time I always feel happy, As happy as a king.
When the red, red, robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along, along,
There'll be no more sobbin' When he starts throbbin' his old 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 walkin' through fields of flow'rs,
Rain may glisten but still I listen for hours and hours,
I'm just a kid again doin' what I did again singing a song,
When the red, red, robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along.
