As usual for popular songs of this era, there are some little-known verses.

WHEN THE RED, RED ROBIN COMES BOB, BOB, BOBBIN' ALONG
Written by Harry Woods, 1926
Recorded by Al Jolson

1. I heard a robin this mornin'. I'm feelin' happy today.
Gonna pack my cares in a whistle. Gonna blow them all away.
What if I've been unlucky? Really, I ain't got a thing. [or "I haven't a thing"]
There's a time I always feel happy, as happy as a king.

CHORUS: 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.
Oh, 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 still I listen for hours and hours.
I'm just a kid again, doing what I did again, singin' a song,
When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along.

2. Though rain may fall in the evening, and rain may fall at night,
When the robin sings in the morning, I know the sun is bright.
I keep still when I hear him singing up in a tree,
For the little angel of gladness brings happiness to me.
