Jamaica Moon Lyrics Meanings

Jamaica Moon Lyrics

Me walking alone, me bring jug of rum
Me sit down on the sea shore 'til di boat she come
It long di night, it's quiet di dock
The boat a little late, she do a 12 o'clock
Me watch the tide, come easy in
It low the moon, but high di wind

Jamaica moon
Jamaica moon

Me was so alone, me couldn't help but open di rum
So long maybe di wait until di boat she come
Me girl she love me, she come back for me
We set sail in di morning, go back across di sea
We dock in New York, the building be so high
She promised me di honeymoon be so near di sky

Jamaica moon
Jamaica moon

Me still alone, me sip on di rum
Me head began to tell me that di boat no come
To bring me me love, bringing me me ting, ting, ting
She rock and roll beautiful, she dance and sing
She hold me closer me, she pushed me lip
Me eyes they close and me heart she go flip

Jamaica moon
Jamaica moon

Me lay down a little woozy, me been drinking di rum
Jamaica moon please tell me that di boat will come
She no can be me bride with di game she play
Me head tell me to go but me body say stay
Me lay down on di dock, was so good di rum
Me fall asleep at noon here when di boat she come

Jamaica moon
Jamaica moon

The girls she come, 'til dawn she roam
They tell me that she look and wait and cry and go back home
Di boat whistle blew, me open me eyes
So bright were di sun, blue Jamaica sky
Down the pier me run di boat I still can see
Sailing fast away with me bride to be

Jamaica moon
Jamaica moon

Now me broken heart is sailing on that boat she on
Me see di water trailing but dey boat she gone
Me missed me bride to be now me head low hung
Me sleep too long, no more me touch di rum
Is so dry me throat me no more can sing
Me miss me bride to be no, have no ting, ting

Jamaica moon
Me love when she gone
Me walking back home
Me still all alone
