Long time ago when I was a little boy I saw that movie "Mutiny on the Bounty" Starring the man called Marlon Brando And I felt a yearning for the great adventure So many nights I woke up out of a dream, me say So many nights I woke up out of a dream I dream of blue sea, I dream of white sands, Paradise birds and the warm-hearted girls
Chorus: Sun of Jamaica, the dreams of Malaika Our love is my sweet memory Sun of Jamaica, blue Lady Malaika Someday I'll return, wait and see All day the sand and I'm happy with you We shall be loving and true Oh, I sure fove Malaika with all of my heart I will always be faithful and true, so true
Now as I grew older this desire got stronger And I bought me a ticket to fly over And when I found you and we fell in love Right from the beginning, me say, right from the start Stars falling down from the sleepy lagoon
Palms swaying under the shining mo¢n And we were swimming out in the crystal sea
Chorus: Sun of Jamaica, blue Lady Malaika...
In that fateful night I thought to myself, yes That fateful night I thought to myself I'll do everything, everything that I can Save up every dime and one day I'll return Back home to you, that's where I belong And we will stay together as one family Hard like a rock always on the attack And I'll stay for ever, for ever and ever
