About Not in Nottingham

"Not in Nottingham" is a song from Walt Disney's animated film Robin Hood written and performed by Roger Miller. The performance by Miller, with narration provided by the minstrel rooster Alan-a-Dale, takes place in the rain while the animals are imprisoned. It is one of three songs sung in the film by Miller, the others being "Whistle-Stop" and "Oo-De-Lally". The song was covered by Los Lobos for their 2009 album Los Lobos Goes Disney. Mumford & Sons also did a rendition of the song during their sessions with Daytrotter in 2012. Watkins Family Hour has long played the song as part of its live repertoire and released a studio version on their 2015 debut album.

Every town
Has its ups and downs
Sometime ups
Outnumber the downs
But not in Nottingham

I'm inclined to believe
If we were so down
We'd up and leave
We'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'
Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?
Can't there be some happiness for me?
Not in Nottingham

Every town

We'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'
Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?
Can't there be some happiness for me?
