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 
(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
