London's mayor Boris Johnson sings Bob Marley's classic 'Three Little Birds' during press launch of the Gigs Busking Competition

Speaking to assembled press at the launch of the Gigs 2013 Busking Competition, the 48-year- old politician revealed that the Reggae classic, Three Little Birds, was one of his favourite songs of all times.

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, more commonly referred to as Boris Johnson, is a British Conservative Party politician, who has served as Mayor of London since 2008.

The zany politician was posed the question what piece of music he would like played at his funeral, to which he quipped: "Is that an event you're looking forward to?" He then pondered the question and eventually said: "Maybe Three Little Birds. Three Little Birds! Yup!"

 And to further drive his point home he serenaded the journalist with a few lines from Bob Marley and The Wailers' 1980 hit single which was released on the 1977 album Exodus.

"Smiling with the risin' sun/ three little birds on my doorstep, singing' sweet songs/ a melody pure and true, singing/ This is my message for yoo-hoo-hoo/ Don't you worry/ 'Bout a thing/because every little thing/ Gonna be alright," sang the blonde Tory.

It's not every day that the Mayor of London sings a Bob Marley classic to the press but what do you think?
