Rita, thanks so much for reminding me of that last verse.

This is one of those songs that became embedded in my mind at around age 10, with no effort on my part.   Not only was it a radio hit one summer when our family traveled by car from NJ to Kansas with little else to keep us 4 kids occupied but games (like spotting and counting red convertibles or dogs) and the radio, but my brother's name is Robin -- so we others, of course, kind of sang the song to taunt him.

It's one of my favorite songs from that era, and I used to know the whole thing. But recently when I "revived" it from memory, I totally forgot there was a 3rd verse.   So glad I looked up this thread -- for no good reason, really -- and found your 'reminder.'
