Goombay Dance Band: Sun Of Jamaica

/Goombay Dance Band/

Long time ago
When I was a young boy
I saw that movie "Mutiny on the Bounty"
Starring my idol Marlon Brando
And I felt a yearning for that great adventure
So many nights I woke up out of a dream
A dream of blue seas, white sands
Paradise birds, butterflies
And beautiful warm-hearted girls

Sun of Jamaica
The dreams of Malaika
Our love is my sweet memory
Sun of Jamaica
Blue Lady Malaika
Some day I'll return, wait and see
Walk in the sand
And I'm happy with you
We shall be loving and true
Oh, I sure love Malaika
With all of my heart
I will always be faithful and true
Yeah, true

But now as I grew older
This buring desire became so strong
That I bought me a ticket to fly over there
And then I found you
And we found an eternal love right from the beginning
Stars falling down from the sleepy lagoon
Palms swaying under the moon
And we're swimming out into the calm, crystal sea
In that fateful night I thought to myself
I'll do everything I can, save up every dime
And one day I'll return, come back home to you
And then I'll stay forever, forever

[Chorus] [2x]
