Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across, you turn and chain them back
Daylight come and me want to go home
Join all your hands and circle to the left
Left allemande and weave around that ring
Day-O, Day-O
Swing your own and we want to go home
Day-O, Day-O
Daylight come and me want to go home


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru and count to four
Daylight come and me want to go home
Swing thru and then the boys run to the right
Tag the line, face right
Wheel and deal, star thru and roll to face
Swing your corner and me want to go home
Day-O, Day-O
Daylight come and me want to go home


TAG

Day-O, Day-O
Daylight come and me want to go home

Day-O (The Banana Boat Song) Lyrics ID: 1007

Day-o, Day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Work all night on a drink a' rum
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Stack banana till the mornin' come
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Come, Mister Tally Man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Come, Mister Tally Man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home

It's six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch!
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch!
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day, me say day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day...
Daylight come and me wan' go home

A beautiful bunch a' ripe banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Hide the deadly black tarantula
Daylight come and me wan' go home

It's six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch!
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch!
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day, me say day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day...
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Come, Mister Tally Man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Come, Mister Tally Man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day-o, day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Lyrics by William Attaway.
