Description

Morning breaks, the world comes to life and growth re-starts. For those who have worked the night, it's time to head home. This picture picks up Harry Belafonte's signature song from 1956 which begins:

Day-O, Day-O
Daylight come an me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Work all night on a drink o' rum
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Stack banana 'til de mornin' come
Daylight come and me wan' go home
