Land of My Birth

This song is by Eric Donaldson.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah
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 of all the trials, we must face the test of time, that our people they are strong and we going to get along.
For some people say we 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 crown 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 make on the beach.

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.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah

Ms tourist, mr. tourist, leave your land and come.
Tarry here for a while, and I will bathe in the warm warm sun.
We will share a lot 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, the land of my birth.
