So grab an iced tea, sit back and get your strum on!

“Three Little Birds” – Bob Marley and The Wailers

I love this song, for its simplicity and its message of optimism.

You know that every little thing is gonna be all right!

Long before Bobby McFerrin told us to, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” Bob Marley had it down.

The song appears on their 1977 album Exodus, and was released as a single in 1980.

“Three Little Birds” has been covered loads of times, including by artists like Billy Ocean, Connie Talbot, Jason Mraz and even Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Now it’s your turn! Check it out!
