Eric Donaldson - Land Of My Birth

This is the land of my birth
I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is Jamaica, my Jamaica
The land of my birth

I will never leave her shores
I will never run away
I will always believe in the black
The green, the gold I say
All nations greater for their trials
We must face the test of time
That our people they are strong
And we are going to get along
Though some people say we are poor
But the progress you make, my friend
Is not always how rich you are

I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is Jamaica, my Jamaica
The land of my birth

Let us stop for a minute
Count our blessings one by one
We should never be disloyal
But stand up and keep strong
My Jamaica is a beautiful island
She is the pearl of the Caribbean Sea
And our people they are free
No oppression here to see
With the prettiest women there be
And the hills and the plains and the rivers
And the valleys always beckon to me

I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is Jamaica, my Jamaica
The land of my birth

(..)

Miss Tourist, Mister Tourist
Leave your land and come
Tarry here for a while
And have a bath in the warm, warm sun
We will share our land with you
Our people they are true
They will want to be with you
They will love, they will help, they will give
If you wish, my friend, you can live
You will be a happier one
In the land of the rising sun

I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is Jamaica, my Jamaica
The land of my birth

I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is the land of my birth
I say this is Jamaica, my Jamaica..
