CANOE SONG, THE from 1935 film "Sanders Of The River" sung by Paul Robeson (Micha Spoliansky (m) Arthur Wimperis (l) 1935) Paul Robeson & Chorus with orchestra conducted by Muir Matheson (Ayee oko, ayoko. Ayee oko, ayoko) Ayee oko, ayege der, Ayee oko, ayege der, Ayee oko, ayee oko, ayee oko. Ayee oko, ayege der, Ayee oko, ayege der, The current swings, The water sings A river rhyme. For light is a burden of labour When each bends his back with his neighbour. So each for all, We stand or fall, And all for each Until we reach The journey's end. (Ayee oko, ayee oko, ayee oko, ayee oko, ayee oko) Sandy the strong, Sandy the wise, Righter of wrong, Hater of lies! Laughed as he fought, Worked as he played, As he had taught Let it be made! Away you go, ayega der, And make it so, ayega der. Together all The paddles fall In tune and time. So look alive, ayega der, And dip and drive, ayega der. The current swings, The water sings A river rhyme. For light is a burden of labour When each bends his back with his neighbour. So each for all, We stand or fall, And all for each Until we reach The journey's end. Oh-oh, oh-oh, Oh-oh, oh-oh, Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2018)
