BANYAN TREE

A FOLK SONG FROM JAMAICA

This song tells of a time when there was no electricity.

But there is Moonshine Tonight

so its time to dance and sing under the

Banyan Tree.


Transferred 2019 from cassette tape recording - Workshop for Teachers of Music, London 1984


Moonshine tonight come make we dance and sing

Mi deh rock so
You deh rock so
Under banyan tree

Ladies may curtsy, gentlemen may bow

Mi deh rock so
You deh rock so
Under banyan tree

Then we join hands and dance around and round

Mi deh rock so
You deh rock so
Under banyan tree
