Jefra Daye

Jefra Daye

From the Michael Andrew album Michael Andrew
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe
Single

Released October 15, 1996
b/w Let Me Take You Home Tonight

A happy song about, literally, a happy song. This was written as a graduation gift, so the line "Stick with me and oh, the places we'll go" is an intentional reference to Dr. Seuss' Oh The Places You'll Go, a popular gift when I graduated from high school (I guess it still is).

Lyrics

There's a little song that takes my blues away
And I can't go wrong singing Jefra Daye
I know the words by heart
It's a simple melody but once you start
Just like me you will be singing along

Toe-tapping, finger-snapping, take your cares away
Then you know the Jefra Daye
Hand-clapping, let it happen, make you smile
I say that's the Jefra Daye

When I'm feeling low it makes me feel okay
Everywhere I go I sing my Jefra Daye
I sing it loud and clear
Anytime, day or night but once you hear
You just might feel all right, so let it show

Toe-tapping, finger-snapping, take your cares away
Then you know the Jefra Daye
Hand-clapping, let it happen, make you smile
I say that's the Jefra Daye

Don't need no reason, don't need no rhyme
You'll be catching on in no time
So stick with me, and oh, the places we'll go

Toe-tapping, finger-snapping, take your cares away
Then you know the Jefra Daye
Hand-clapping, let it happen, make you smile
I say that's the Jefra Daye
