ISLAND IN THE SUN (Harry Belafonte / Lord Burgess) Harry Belafonte - 1957 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 CHORUS 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 CHORUS I see woman on bended knee Cutting cane for her family I see man at the waterside Casting nets at the surging tide CHORUS 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 CHORUS (humming to end)
