OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Everybody rainbow stroll
*This is my island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
I may sail on many a sea
The shores will always be home for me

Left allemande and do a dosado
Left allemande then promenade your own
All my days I will sing in praise
Of her forests, her waters, and the shining sands


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I see woman on bended knee
Cutting cane for her family
I see man at the waterside
He's casting nets at the surging tide


*I hope the day will never come
That I can't awake to the sound of the drum
I hope I never miss carnival
With calypso sounds so philosophical


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head (side) 2 couples curlique and then the boys run right
Make a right hand star and turn it once around tonight
Heads (sides) to the center with a left hand star you turn it round and then
Right & left thru, turn the girl and then dive thru
Curlique to a right hand star, turn it round and then
Swing the corner lady, now you promenade my friend
Promenade her home across the sea you run
Take your little girl to the island of the sun


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

All 4 ladies chain go straight across the ring
Heads flutter wheel go full around and then
Sweep 1/4, pass thru and do the dosado
Spin tag the deucey, keep walking round you go
This is my island in the sun
When you're there swing thru and the boys you run
Promenade her home across the sea you run
Take your little girl to the island of the sun


TAG

I love my island in the sun

Island In The Sun
 
 

This is my island in the sun
Where my people have toiled since time begun
I may sail on many a sea
Her shores will always be home to me

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

As morning breaks the heaven on high
I lift my heavy load to the sky
Sun comes down with a burning glow
Mingles my sweat with the earth below

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

I see woman on bended knee
Cutting cane for her family
I see man at the waterside
Casting nets at the surging tide

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

I pray the day will never come
When I can't awake to the sound of drum
Never let me miss carnival
With calypso songs philosophical

Oh, island in the sun
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing in praise
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

Lyrics by Harry Belafonte and Irving Burgie.
Recorded by Harry Belafonte.
