Cliffs of Negril, jumping and Jimmy
Marley and Tosh and Dancehall shimmy
From Wint to Ottey and Mccallum to Gayle
To Usain the Bolt, as fast as email.

There’s mannish, ackee, bissy and draws blue
Jerk chicken, gizadda and suckers callaloo.
Don’t forget Garvey, Bogle and Miss Lou

From the heights of Dry Harbor, Mocho and Blue
From Montego, Winifred and Boston Bay too
White beaches at sunset, like seeing Jah’s face
Not a place on The Island, untouched by His grace

To Africans, Asians and Europeans a toast
To those black as night and those white as ghosts
“Out of Many One People”, our coat of arms
Raise a glass for Jamaica and all of its charms

#Jamaica #Island
