    I feel what this song is trying to say is the same as "Let It Be". When we try to control things that are not under our control, we start feelling down, etc. But once you accept the fact you can't control them, that you "let them be", you can't start to feel happy or at least not unhappy. Because at the end of the day, every little thing's gonna be alright"

    Bob was referring to The Father, the Son and Holy Spirt as the three little birds! He was telling us that we are always protected and also will be protected with the divine power all above! Jah

    Three little birds were father, son and the holy ghost telling him everything will be alright in his last days.

    I think it may be a riff on the old phrase "Three Little Words" (I Love You) which appeared in many song titles for decades before Bob ever started singing. Just a thought starter.

    Bob Marley is trying to tell us that even our worst outcomes can be overcome and that everything is going to be alright

    The three little birds represent the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Yes, everything is gonna be alright.

    I think he is trying to tell you that you should be worried about the little things and that because everything seems to turn out all right in the end hence every little thing is gonna be alright.

    This song is so inspirational and so up beat ad happy it with just the beat in general I think it's just trying to make you happy.

    Faith..that's all...
    No matter what,you must have faith...do not lean upon Jah/God/Allah...look around you,He is everywhere..
    I don't know if it's a metaphor but the example of 3 birds singing sweet songs of melodies pure and true it's in my opinion an example of the Father's power...what can be more pure then to wake up,smile with the smiling sun,hearing birds singing and thinking..wow,that's Him!!!
    Release yourself from ego...that is what Bob Marley accomplished!!!
    Almighty is here,there,everywhere,nowhere!!

    Peace and Justice!
