Day 9: Rockin' Robin

Another of my absolute favourite Christmas time songs (even though it doesn't mention Christmas).

It was written by Leon René under the pseudonym of Jimmie Thomas and recorded by Bobby Day in 1958. My favourite version has to be Michael Jackson's - he was just 14 years old when he recorded it in 1972.

We are keeping the pace of our medley up nice and high with this one, it leads on really well from Santa Claus is Coming to Town. I will show you how to add taps to the ukulele to add percussion and make it sound really funky! You'll be glad to know the chords are really simple too!
