Songinfo

"Calypso" is geschreven door John Denver in 1975 als eerbetoon aan Jacques-Yves Cousteau en zijn onderzoek schip, de Calypso. Het lied stond ook album Windsong. John Denver was een goede vriend van Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Calypso was de naam van het onderzoek Jacques Cousteau's boot die over de hele wereld zeilde voor oceanische behoud. De plaat is dan ook opgedragen aan Kapitein Jacques-Yves Cousteau en allen die gewerkt hebben op het schip "Calypso"

Trivia

Wist je dat? In Amerika werd "Calypso" uitgebracht als de B-kant van "I' Sorry", Nadat "I'm Sorry" van de nummer 1 positie viel, begon "Calypso" zoveel meer airplay te krijgen dan "I'm Sorry" dat de Billboard het nummer" Calypso" opnam als de nieuwe a-kant. "Calypso" is zodoende zelf een nummer 2 hit geworden op de Hot 100. Ook in Nederland bereikte "Calypso" de nummer 2 positie.

Songtekst

Calypso

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 the living
In search of the answers to 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 taught us
The stories you tell
Aye, Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you
So long and so well

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 the 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

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
