Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

“Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is 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
Sit 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 is gonna be all right.”
Singin’: “Don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right!”

Rise up this mornin’,
Smiled with the risin’ sun,
Three little birds
Sit 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 is gonna be all right. Don’t worry!”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing” – I won’t worry!
“‘Cause every little is thing gonna be all right.”

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right” – I won’t worry!
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right.”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing, oh no!
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right!
