The Sugarcane Dance

July 4, 2020 Off By Alfred Nyagaka Nyamwange

SUGAR CANE DANCE

This way and that way
The wind blows,the leaves sing
This is way and that way
The baby laughs, makes a swing
The crow caws and dives away
The cows moo and jump
The wind swings the pump.

This way and that way
This way and that way
We move in a line, hurrah
We move in a circle, hurrah.

The sugar cane shines
And swings, and bends
The sun watches and shines
Before the dance ends

This way and that way
The wind blows and whistles
The sugar cane rustles
This way and that way.
