Final Round: Bob Marley: The first 10 words of four or more letters in ‘Three Little Birds’ by Bob Marley [The first 10 different words of 4 letters or more in the Top 10 single by Bob Marley; does not include contracted words, therefore “don’t” is not a tenable answer, nor is “cos” as a contraction of “because”, because it can be spelt in different ways, “gonna” is also not an acceptable answer.]
