Subject: She gonna dance, she gonna sing
From: fractaljq@rocketmail.com

I heard a song once a long time ago. I think it's by Harry Belafonte, but I'm not sure. The only lyrics I can remember are:

She gonna dance, she gonna sing She gonna cause the rafters to ring She gonna dance, she gonna sing She gonna cause the rafters to ring

If anyone can help me out with this, I'd really appreciate it!

Jacob

Here are the words to the song you are looking for. Sorry to be a day late getting this together. Found it on "Harry Belafonte Calypso" album LSP-1248.

DOLLY DAWN

When Dolly hear them sounding drum,
Up she jump and holler here Icome.
(Repeat)

Chorus:
'Cause she gonna dance, she gonna sing,
She gonna cause the rafters to ring.
She gonna dance, she gonna sing,
She gonna cause the rafters to ring,
She gonna dance, she gonna sing,
She gonna cause the rafters to ring.

Don't stop her when she hear the call,
Dolly Dawn goin to have herself a ball.
(Repeat)

When Dolly start to shake and shout,
Clear the floor 'cause she really move about.
(Repeat)

When Dolly go into a turn,
Old men jump and their eyes begin to burn.
(Repeat)

Soon Dolly go into a fall,
Turn and spin and then she climb the wall.
(Repeat)

Chorus: Last repeat goes to fade.
