Treasure Island

Godfrey Morris

(August 1,1982 / Kingston, Jamaica)

Jamaica, Jamaica - Island of Songs


Jamaica! Jamaica! Island of songs
Jamaica! Jamaica! Home all belong
Your sea is of royal blue
All sands are of splendid hues
The mid-day sun smiles gracious at you
To cover you whole and make dreams true
My Island song
There is none to you
Blessed with such beauty
Greatness abounds in you
Great vegetation springs from your hand
Native expressions draws life’s demand
The towering blue mountains give majestic stance
My Jamaica where water greatly flows
My treasure where the country wind blows
Tis my Jamaica all do embrace
Every number every race
Gives praise to this place
Dear to heart, my island of songs

The world is full of meat and drink,
