*Everyday I read the ads in the paper
Saying come to the island

Men star right, once around tonight
Allemande, weave
You're my Jamaica
Dosado, you promenade
You're my Jamaica, you're paradise to me

You're My Jamaica
 
 

Every day I read ads in the papers, sayin' "Come to islands.
Bikini ladies, sweet rum drinks and they'll keep you smilin'."
I got Calypso music on my record at home.
When it comes to the warmth an' the sunshine, I got my own.

You're my Jamaica, where I wanna be.
You're my island when I'm bein' tossed on a stormy sea.
My Heavenly haven, where I could spend eternity.
You're my Jamaica: you're paradise to me.

White sunny sand, palm trees an' tango sounds so invitin'.
Limbo dancin' an' starlight romancin, it's all so excitin'.
I got my flowery shirt an' rum punch in my hand.
Found exotic lover in my native land.

You're my Jamaica, where I wanna be.
You're my island when I'm bein' tossed on a stormy sea.
My Heavenly haven, where I could spend eternity.
You're my Jamaica: you're paradise to me.

You're my Jamaica, where I wanna be.
You're my island when I'm bein' tossed on a stormy sea.
My Heavenly haven, where I could spend eternity.
You're my Jamaica: you're paradise to me.

You're my Jamaica, where I wanna be.
You're my island when I'm bein' tossed on a stormy sea.
My Heavenly haven, where I could spend eternity.
You're my Jamaica: you're paradise to me.

Lyrics by Kent Robbins.
Recorded by Charley Pride.
