Dreaming about Kingston, and all my smiling friends
I could use a little sunshine, and a chance to catch my breath
I got so down in London town, I was so confused and tired
But they got the message through to me, by the laughter in their eyes

I can hear the sailboats rattle, dancing gently with the breeze
And the stillness on the water just moves you free and easy
I'm hoping that Jamaica can find some place for me
I need some place to get away, wanna dance out in the street

Oh oh too many heartaches
Oh oh too many heartbreaks
Young Queen of Jamaica with your wide and rolling eyes
Chewing on a stick of gum, with your lazy day smile
How come your hair's all done, like a freshly plowed field
Standing so close to me, that I can almost feel you

Oh oh too many heartaches
Oh oh too many heartbreaks
Get your friends down to the ark
We sail tonight for worlds apart
(I said ) sail on sail on sail on
On to those islands of the heart

Circles of silver, that run right round your arms
You've really got me in, with your sweet and magic charms
I wish you would speak to me, I am lost and afraid
I can't stand up no more, I am longing to escape

Oh oh too many heartaches
Oh oh too many heartbreaks
Get your friends down to the ark
We sail tonight for worlds apart
(I said ) sail on sail on sail on
On to those islands of the heart
