Every day I read ads in the paper
Saying come to the islands
Bikini'd ladies sweet rum drinks, yeah
They'll keep you smiling

But I've got calypso music on the record at home
And when it comes to the warmth and sunshine
Well, I got my own

You're my Jamaica
You're where I want to be
You're my island when I am being
Tossed on a stormy sea

My heavenly haven
Where I can spend eternity
You're my Jamaica
Your paradise to me

White sunny sand palm trees and tans
It's sounds so inviting

Limbo dancing and star light romancing

It's all so exciting
But I got my flowery shirt
And rum punch in my hand
And my own exotic lover in my native land

You're my Jamaica
You're where I want to be
You're my island when I am being
Tossed on a stormy sea

My heavenly haven
Where I can spend eternity
You're my Jamaica
You're paradise to me
