OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Allemande left your corner walk on back a dosado
Curlique and the boys run right you know
Circle left go moving round the land
Left allemande and weave around the ring
Weave in and out until you meet your maid
Dosado, then we'll all promenade
Promenade your lady round the ring you run
Take her home and swing her on your island in the sun


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 round the ring
Heads promenade 3/4 round I sing
Sides square thru 3/4 round and then
Dosado and make a wave my friend
Swing thru and then go right & left grand
On third hand promenade go round the land
Promenade this lady round the ring you run
Take her home and swing her on your 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.
