I pulled into Kingston on a sunny day?in Jamaica.
Tropical breeze whispers tru de trees, de girls like to play?in Jamaica.
Sounds of reggae through the air, they make me want to stay?in Jamaica.

(chorus)
It?s gonna be a reggae summer.
It?s gonna be a reggae summer.

We have a hut where we be jammin', we jam it all day long?in Jamaica.
And when ol Mr. Sun break tru de clouds, nuttin' can go wrong?in Jamaica.
So light de ganja, pass de rum, and sing a reggae song?in Jamaica.

(chorus)

Dis new life I have found down by de sea?in Jamaica.
Me and my lady?s hearts, they will always be?in Jamaica.
So come taste dis island paradise and live like me?in Jamaica.

It?s gonna be a reggae summer?come-a, come-a, come-a feel dat island beat,
Be a reggae summer? let de island rhythms move your feet, mon.
(vamp and fade)
