Harry Belafonte stopped by my shop today.

And do you KNOW what he said ??

All of you who know it, and … it has to be MOST of you North Americans, at LEAST … feel free to sing along.

DAYYYY-DO

DAYYYY-DO

Dado come and me wan’ go home.

It’s just shadows. They’re straight, clean, 3/8” deep, and …. STOPPED !

This MAY have been the hardest technique I’ve tried, yet.

One more panel. NOT uncrossing my fingers, yet.

Work all night on a drink of rum
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Stack banana till de morning come
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Day, me say day-ay-ay-do
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Beautiful bunch of ripe banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Hide the deadly black tarantula
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day-ay-ay-do
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day-do, day-ay-ay-do
Daylight come and me wan’ go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day….ay-ay-do
Daylight come and me wan’ go home

You’ll have to change your name to ”Dado-Daddy-yo”.
