Three little birds sat on my window
And they told me I don't need to worry
Summer came like cinnamon, so sweet
Little girls, double-dutch on the concrete
Maybe sometimes we got it wrong, but it's all right
The more things seems to change, the more they stay the same
Ooo, don't you hesitate

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely
Sipping tea in the bar by the road side
(Just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you
Gotta love that Afro hairdo
Maybe sometimes we feel afraid, but it's all right
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change
Don't you think it's strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Just more than I could take
Pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake
I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realize that you don't even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to
Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
Ooo, you're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Put your Records On by Corinne Bailey Rae, Live

About:
Put Your Records On” — which pays homage to Bob Marley’s ''Three Little Birds”'
in the opening two lines — is from Corinne Bailey Rae’s 2006 self-titled debut album.

The song earned Grammy nominations for Song of the Year and Record
of the Year. She was surprised the song got “any reaction at all.”

Media Reaction:
In 2018, NPR ranked this as the 82 greatest song by a female or nonbinary
artist in the 21st century, saying:

‘Put Your Records On,’ from English singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae’s self-titled debut studio album, was one of the greatest summer songs of 2006

The song’s opening is reminiscent of Bob Marley’s ‘3 Little Birds’ and
the mentality that ‘everything gonna be alright!’
The song has a cool groove that moves you to be who you are and embrace
your inner beauty.
It’s a lift-me-up kind of song that reminds us that nobody’s perfect —
but that if we keep trying to do what we believe in, we’ll find our own way.

(Songwriters: Corinne Jacqueline N Bailey Rae / John Robert Beck / Steven Chrisanthou.)

I hope you enjoyed it.
