"Not In Nottingham" is the fourth and final song of Disney's 1973 animated feature, Robin Hood. It takes place in the rain and with the animals in jail. It was sung by Alan-A-Dale (Roger Miller).

The song was covered by Mumford & Sons during their sessions with Daytrotter.

A short reprise is sung off-screen by Alan-a-Dale when Friar Tuck is taken to the jail by the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Lyrics

Every town...
Has its ups and downs...
Sometimes 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.
