Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande that corner, turn your partner right hand round
Men star left across, turn the opposite lady right
Allemande new corner, then go forward 3
With a right, left, right, turn back one you see
Left allemande that corner, come weave the ring with me
Go in and out around until you meet again
Promenade her home across the sea you run
Take her home and swing her, in the Island of the Sun


FIGURE    A1, R-H lady progression

1 & 3 you promenade go 3/4 round
2 & 4 star thru, pass thru you do
Promenade outside the ring, while the other ladies chain
Turn your girl and all promenade, go walking with that maid
1 & 3 wheel around, do the right & left thru
Cross trail back, swing the corner, promenade
Take her right back home around the ring you run
Promenade her home to the Island of 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.
