SWEET JAMAICA

Verse 1:

A- Sunlit beaches, clear blue water. Dig my toes into the sand
Brown skinned lady wearing flowers beckons me to take her hand

B- As the music rings slowly the lady swings
In the soft moon light, bringing sweet delight


C-I love living on the island. Ooh, the mainland is so cold
Flying fishes in the ocean, Oh, Jamaica is my home

Chorus:
Sweet Jamaica, sweet Jamaica, sweet Jamaica is my home

Verse 2:
A- Oh, how sweet the southern breezes blowing softly through my hair
Me and my lady we do nothing but feel so glad that we are here
B-As the music rings,
slowly the lady swings
In the soft moon light, bringing sweet delight

C-I love living on the island,
Oh, the mainland is so cold,
Flying fishes in the ocean,
Sweet Jamaica is my home.

Chorus
Instrumental Break
B- As the music rings slowly the lady swings
In the soft moon light, bringing sweet delight

C- I love living on the island. Oh, the mainland is so cold
Flying fishes in the ocean, Oh, Jamaica is my home
Chorus:Sweet Jamaica, sweet Jamaica, sweet Jamaica is my home
Repeat Chorus
