Subject: Lyr Req: God Danced on the day you were born
From: GUEST,Raffi Maslan

Hello all,

I'm looking for a song entitled "God Danced on the day you were born".

It was sung to me on my birthday at a dance camp called "Dancing Fool", it has a swing beat and several verses, though unfortunatly I can't remember a single one.

God Danced
Andrew Lawrence

God danced the day you were born
The angels did the bump to Gabriel's horn
God danced the day you were born
So grateful for the gift of you

I saw God do the funky chicken
Steppin' and kickin' in blue suede shoes
I saw God do the boogaloo, too
Faced with the gift of you.

I have heard some folks say that long ago
God could not dance to save his soul,
But people, I've seen him shake that jelly roll
Just thinking 'bout the gift of you!

Sing each part separately, then layer them to sing in 3-part harmony! My chorus sang this last season!

At the moment I can't find the book that was the written source for me, but I'll post it later. I heard it at Old Songs last year, too!

Allison

Or if you can wait till the weekend I'll send a midi to get posted on Mudcat Midis. I will have to put the notation into Noteworthy Composer and so on, so it will have to wait a few days.

hi,
I was at Earthdance in Massachusetts (www.earthdance.net) 9 years ago when Andrew (Ando) wrote this song for Chris Aiken (a contact improv dance teacher) and then taught ot to all 40 or so of us so we could sing it in harmony to him while he stood in the middle of the circle. It was a very powerful moment for me, and I imagine for him.
I am going back there this August to do the same intensive course with Chris! I wonder if Ando will be there...

I am looking for the music to this song. I also thought the song was longer than what is shown.

There are at least 4 videos on YouTube of various people (all amateurs, apparently) singing GOD DANCED. Click here to see.

...and in a note of shameless self-promotion, let me say that we put the lyrics and notation for "God Danced" on page 64 of the Rise Again Songbook.
It's a great song, Andrew.
