Did King David's parents abandon him? (Psalm 27)

This time of year we say the Psalm 27 “LeDavid Ori”. It contains a line, "For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord gathers me in."

Why might King David have even thought of abandonment by parents? Was this common at that time? Was he abandoned by his parents?
