Lyrics Island in the Sun

This is my island in the sun
Where my people have toiled since time begun
I may sail on many 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 hope 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
Mmm
Mmm
Ooh ooh ooh oh
Ooh
