Daylight Coming

Another day dawns and this one with bright sun and no wind. Hoping to make the good choice of getting out to walk in the morning instead of waiting for the afternoon. 

Yesterday was the weekly alum sing and continuing my practice of writing new words to old songs, came up with this version of Day-O. (Do you younger people know about Harry Belafonte and his recordings of calypso music?) Sing it out loud and enjoy!

Day o, ees it day-o?
Daylight comin’,  me no want to stay home.   (2x)

Work all day in the online class
Daylight comin’, me no want to stay home.
I need to go out and lay in the grass
Daylight comin’, me no want to stay home. (Continue response after each line)

Got to go for a walk, get off of me butt.
I’m 10 weeks overdue for a haircut.

Come Mr. Tallyman, tally all me money.
The stock market fallin’ and that ain’t funny.

We’re not riding Muni or riding on BART.
We’re wearing our masks, staying 6 feet apart. 

6 weeks, 7 weeks, 8 weeks, more!
When we gonna finally open the door?

Some states opening, results are gruesome.
Thank goodness we have Gavin Newsom. 

Mother Nature sent us all to our room.
But we can still sing together on Zoom.

Day o, ees it day-o?
Daylight comin’, me no want to stay home. (2x)
