I Write The Songs #99 Serge Gainsbourg songwriter of the week, first aired on Canalside Radio 102.8FM

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 ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright.”

Bob Marley, Three little birds
