There's a little bitty boy down in Jamaica
Who has the gift of seeing second sight

Walk all around your corner see saw your partner
Allemande left your corner and weave the ring
Everybody sing Hallelujah
Swing your girl around and promenade
Everybody sing Hallelujah
So all the people gonna have a brighter day


ALTERNATE LYRICS

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away

A Brighter Day
 
 

There's a little bitty boy down in Jamaica
Who has the gift of seeing second sight
He sees the world and all it's troubles
But inside his heart the sun is shining bright

So everybody shout to your brother
Everybody sing let your spirit fly away
Oh, oh, oh shout to your brother
So all the people have a brighter day

Well the network news went down to the island
To try to understand the things he sees
But he just laughed and he waved at the camera
He said open up your mind and follow me

So everybody shout to your brother
Everybody sing let your spirit fly away
Oh, oh, oh shout to your brother
So all the people have a brighter day

When people go to war it hurts us all, you see
They don't feel the need to congregate
I may be just a boy, but I am not a fool
Our leaders need to simplify instead of complicate

So everybody shout to your brother
Everybody sing let your spirit fly away
Oh, oh, oh shout to your brother
So all the people have a brighter day

Everybody... yeah, yeah... everybody

Everybody shout to your brother
Said everybody sing... can ya hear him say
Oh, oh, oh shout to your brother
So all the people have a brighter day

Can you hear them singing?

Everybody shout... to the little bitty boy
Everybody sing... all the people just gotta believe
Oh, oh, oh shout to your brother
I wanna tell ya, all the people have a brighter day

Ohh, ohh can ya hear what the little boy say?

Lyrics by Tom Johnston.
Recorded by Doobie Brothers.
