"Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" by Stevie Wonder

====================================================

Everybody's got a thing

But some don't know how to handle it

Always reachin' out in vain

Accepting the things not worth having but

 

Don't you worry 'bout a thing

Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama

Cause I'll be standing on the side

When you check it out

 

They say your style of life's a drag

And that you must go other places

But just don't you feel too bad

When you get fooled by smiling faces but

 

Don't you worry 'bout a thing

Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama

Cause I'll be standing on the side

When you check it out...Yeah

 

When you get it off...your trip

Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah

Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah

Don't you worry 'bout a thing

Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama

Cause I'll be standing on the side

When you check it out...

 

When you get it off...your trip

Everybody needs a change

A chance to check out the new

But you're the only one to see

The changes you take yourself through

 

Don't you worry 'bout a thing

Don't you worry 'bout a thing, pretty mama

Cause I'll be standing in the wings

When you check it out

 

Don't you worry 'bout a thing

 

 

Don't Worry About A Thing by Van Morrison (Mose Allison)

==========================================================

If this life is driving you to drink

Sitting round what's the use what to think

Well I've got some consolation

Give it to you if I might

 

You know I don't worry about a thing because

Nothing's gonna turn out right

Well this world's just one big troubled spot

Some have plenty, some have not

 

I've used to be troubled but

I finally saw the light

Now I don't worry about a thing because I know

Nothing's gonna be alright

 

You spend your time trying to be the big winner

The minute you'll get fat somebody else will get thinner

There's always somebody messing with dynamite

 

You know I don't worry about a thing because I know

Nothing's gonna turn out right

 

 

Don't Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin

=============================================

Here's a little song I wrote

You might want to sing it note for note

 

Don't Worry - Be Happy

 

In every life we have some trouble

But when you worry you make it Double

 

Don't Worry - Be Happy

 

Ain't got no place to lay your head,

somebody came and took your bed

 

Don't Worry, Be Happy

 

The landlord say your rent is late,

he may have to litigate

 

Don't Worry - Be Happy

 

Ain't got not cash, ain't got no style,

ain't got no gal to make you smile

 

Don't Worry - Be Happy

 

Cause when you worry your face will frown

and that will bring everybody down

 

Don't Worry - Be Happy

 

 

Don't Worry Baby by The Beach Boys

==============================================

Well its been building up inside of me

For oh I don't know how long

I don't know why

But I keep thinking

Something's bound to go wrong

But she looks in my eyes

And makes me realize

And she says "Don't worry baby"

 

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

Everything will turn out alright

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

 

I guess I should've kept my mouth shut

When I started to brag about my car

But I can't back down now because

I pushed the other guys too far

She makes me come alive

And makes me wanna drive

When she says "Don't worry baby"

 

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

Everything will turn out alright

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

 

She told me "Baby, when you race today

Just take along my love with you

And if you knew how much I loved you

Baby nothing could go wrong with you"

Oh what she does to me

When she makes love to me

And she says "Don't worry baby"

 

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

Everything will turn out alright

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

Don't worry baby

 

 

Three Little Birds - Bob Marley

================================================

"Don't worry about a thing,

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right.

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

 

Rise up this mornin',

Smiled with the risin' sun,

Three little birds

Pitch by my doorstep

Singin' sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true,

Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou:")

 

Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing,

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

 

Rise up this mornin',

Smiled with the risin' sun,

Three little birds

Pitch by my doorstep

Singin' sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true,

Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

 

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!

Every little thing gonna be all right. Don't worry!"

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing" - I won't worry!

"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right" - I won't worry!

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, oh no!

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right! /fadeout/
