Tune:  "Day-O" by
Harry Belafonte

(Get out your Harry Belafonte records and study the rhythm carefully - this song is a lot of fun with a set of hand drums!)

Day-o, Day-o,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Day, misa day, misa day, misa day-o.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

Tonight we dance till the morning come.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Tomorrow we greet the newborn Sun.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

Now is the darkest season of the year but,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Now is the darkest season of the year but,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

The darkness flies before his face.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Light is returning to this place.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

Day, misa day-o,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Day, misa day-o,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

The Lady has given birth to her son.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
When he grow up they gonna have some fun.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

The season wheel it will forever turn.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
As the fire within, it will ever burn.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

Now is the darkest season of the year but,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Now is the darkest season of the year but,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

Day, misa day-o,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Day, misa day-o,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

Now is the darkest season of the year but.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Now is the darkest season of the year but.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.

Day-o, Day-o,
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
Day, misa day, misa day, misa day-o.
Daylight come and the Sun is reborn.
