When I sat down to write a fun, playful and catchy movement song for music class, the old Harry Belafonte tune “Day-O” came to mind immediately.
It felt like a moment of divine inspiration, because the lyrics came faster than I could type them. It doesn’t get much better than that as a songwriter!
This is a good song to wind down with at the end of a class or session, as children start to get a bit antsy and need to move. I usually sing it a capella so that I can move right along with them.
