Dandy Man, Oh

Dandy Man, Oh

Dandy man, oh
Dandy man, oh
Dandy man,
Look-oh day are break, oh

Dandy man, oh
Dandy man, oh
Dandy man,
Look-oh day are break, oh

Day are break, oh
Cock a-crow, oh
O'Neil a-go home
Wha' me go do, oh?

Day are break, oh
Cock a-crow, oh
O'Neil a-go home
Wha' me go do, oh?

   During a Reel Dance (Trinidad or Tobago), ancestral spirits
     are summoned from Africa with special songs and drumming.  At
     day-break the ancestors must leave the dance.  This song is
     a lament at the departure of one of the spirits, O'Neil, here
     addressed by the affectionate "dandy man."  I have this from
     a zox of a book at the Berkeley main library; don't remember
     the title. JN
