  • Lyrics
  • When she gets up in the morning
    It's enough to wake the dead
    Oh she turning on the radio
    And dancing on my head

    It's no good living in the sun
    Playing guitar all day
    Boogalooing with my friends
    In that erotic way

    Come on Jamaica
    In Jamaica all day
    Dancing with your darling
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that way

    Come on Jamaica
    Everybody say
    We're all happy in Jamaica
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that way

    Let the ladies and the gentlemen
    Be as rude as they like
    On the beaches, oh in the jungle
    Where the people feel alright

    So do it Jamaica yeah
    Got plenty for you and me
    Honky tonking with my baby
    In that deep blue sea

    Come on Jamaica
    In Jamaica all day
    Dancing with your darling
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that way

    Come on Jamaica
    Everybody say
    We're all happy in Jamaica
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that way

    Come on Jamaica
    In Jamaica all day
    Dancing with your darling
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that way

    Come on Jamaica
    Everybody say
    We're all happy in Jamaica
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that way

    Come on Jamaica
    In Jamaica all day
    Dancing with your darling
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that way

    Come on Jamaica
    Everybody say
    We're all happy in Jamaica
    Do Jamaica jerk-off that wayWriter/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
