Sides star thru, zoom
Right & left thru, box the gnat you know
Everybody double pass thru, peel off and go

Meet your girl, promenade go round the set
Promenade 'em home around the ring you run
Take your lady back to the island in the sun

Head ladies lead flutter wheel across the ring you go
Sweep 1/4 more, pass thru and go
Dosado the outside two, swing thru

Ferris wheel around, the centers pass thru
Swing the corner, promenade you do
Promenade round the ring you run
Take a little lady back home to the island in the sun

Promenade home, go walking from there

All promenade full around to home

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.
