The night seems to fade
But the moonlight lingers on
 There are wonders for everyone 
The stars shine so bright 
But they're fading after dawn
 There is magic in Kingston Town

Oh Kingston Town
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Ooh, ooh, ooh

And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king
And my queen will come at dawn
She'll be waiting in Kingston Town

Oh Kingston Town
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Ooh, ooh, ooh

And when I am king
 Surely I would need a queen 
And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king
And my queen will come at dawn
She'll be waiting in Kingston Town
