Down in Jamaica where the soft winds blow I took a trip it was a long time ago From distant shores the music gently played And I was hypnotized by a dark skinned girl that danced and whirled Quickly I knew I was in love with that calypso girl Dance and whirl calypso girl you could never give your heart Dance and dine and drink the wine But someday you will know what makes the lonely teardrops start She danced in Del Camino Inn each night And how I longed to kiss and hold her tight Her sparkling eyes were burning just for me We celebrated and with kisses warm she led me on She promised she would wait for me while I was gone Dance and whirl calypso girl... The night I left she said she loved me so And went into another's arms I know They raised their glass and drank a toast to love And then she danced for him with eyes that tempt and form that whirls For no one love could hold the heart of calypso girl Dance and whirl calypso ... Back to Jamaica I did go one day Down to Camino Inn to hear them play Outside the door was a woman dressed in rags No one would care to see that beggar woman dance and whirl It broke my heart to know it was my calypso girl Dance and whirl calypso girl...
