​Jamaica Mama

This song is by Udo Jürgens and appears on the album Udo '80 (1979).

On a visit down the Caribbean way
To be exact in Montego Bay,
I chanced to see a pretty baby.

A lovely pickney smile
And I lost my heart
By the sea in Montego Bay.
A beauty was she my little baby.

Jamaica-Mama - uuh,
You have a pretty daughter
And when I leave her - uuh,
I cry livin' eye water.

I didn't want those days to end.
I'd never known such happiness.
I never told her that I soon will have to go - no, no.

Chor und Udo: düdüdü...

I followed her up the mountain side,
I went with her for a donkey ride.
We ran and played, love was around me
And then one evening I wanted to say:
My plane will soon leave Montego Bay,
But the glim in her eyes
Suddenly warned me.

Jamaica-Mama - uuh
You have a pretty daughter,
And when I leave her - uuh
I cry livin' eye water.
I didn't want those days to end.
I'd never known such happiness.

I never told her that I soon will have to go - no, no.
Chor und Udo: düdüdü...
I went to her Mama,
But I couldn't find words.
When I tried to tell her the truth
She said: My son - God go with you.

Jamaica- Mama - uuh,

I have to leave your daughter.
Jamaica-Mama - uuh
And I cry livin' eye water.
I didn't want those days to end.
I'd never known such happiness
And that I fell in love so deep
I couldn't know - no, no.

Chor und Udo: düdüdü...

And that I never will forget these days
I know

Chor und Udo: düdüdü...

And that I never will forget these days
I know.
