Calypso Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Calypso

John Denver

To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean,
to ride on the crest of a wild raging storm
To work in the service of life and living,
in search of the answers of questions unknown
To be part of the movement and part of the growing,
part of beginning to understand,

Aye Calypso the places you've been to,
the things that you've shown us,
the stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit,
the men who have served you so long and so well

Hi dee ay-ee ooo doo-dle oh
oo do do do do do doo-dle ay yee
doo-dle ay ee

Like the dolphin who guides you, you bring us beside you
To light up the darkness and show us the way
For though we are strangers in your silent world
To live on the land we must learn from the sea
To be true as the tide and free as a wind swell
Joyful and loving in letting it be

Aye Calypso the places you've been to,
the things that you've shown us,
the stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit,
the men who have served you so long and so well

Hi dee ay-ee ooo doo-dle oh
oo do do do do do doo-dle ay yee
doo-dle ay ee

he dee Ay-ee
Hi dee oh ooo
hi dee ayee
hi dee oh ooo

my colleague continually plays this in her office. I used to like John, but this has me bordering on homicidal rage.

This song by John Denver is at the heart of everything he has ever done in his career and it is sung so very well, with meaning and pathos.

My partner & I stood beneath a boat sign on the marina jetty of Port Douglas. We had an amazing night with dinner & a walk, somehow we arrived there beneath that sign with our arms embraced. We talked love peotry & we knew from that night that we were in love & we were going to spend alot of time together. We walk away with the calypso moment in our hearts as it was.I later looked up the word ; West Indian song, usually about subject of current interest, & with syncopated rythem. Today on the radio there was anouncement about the aniversary of his death flying planes. They mentioned this song, so my partner looked it up. I love the uncanny relation to the ocean, that dolphin was beneath our jetty. His name was Jesus. Love you babe.

I really appreciate the lyrics, they were difficult to find!! However, the line is missing "the" as follows:

To work in the service of life and THE living,
Hope this helps keep the lyrics coming!!

We sang this song in elementary school!! I'm in high school now and I still remember parts of it

Really? Who knew that Jacques Cousteau's boat "Calypso" and his book about undersea exploration "The Silent World" were really part of the "New World Order"? What next, "Rocky Mountain High" is really about a Communist plot?
by Tom brown on 4/25/2013 6:47am
It is the worst song Ever
by Pat on 5/7/2013 8:48am

Cassettes?...What year is it I'm Kenya and why does Denver have his shirt off on that album cover ?
by bunny on 1/31/2014 10:56pm
he has shirt off because he looks like a newt
by Charles on 2/14/2014 7:50pm
I saw him in concert. He was incredibly talented, as was the band who played with him. And yes, I watched the Jacques Ives Cousteau tv shows a long time ago too, and loved them. Good song.
