Don’t you wish someone would take you to Jamaica? I think we all do. This sweet flowing song will help take your mind to the shores of the reggae capital.

When I’m not sipping on corona and staring out at the Gulf of Mexico, I’m usually in front of a computer. While sitting there I like to listen to music that puts in me a relaxed island state of mind and the addictive No Shoes Radio is usually my station of choice. I really dig the station because they play a great mix of rock, country, reggae and trop rock. One song they spin often is “Take Me To Jamaica” by Ziggy Marley featuring Toots Hibbert.

I’m a huge fan of the song, the sound and the vibe and thought it would make a good addition to Music Monday and the Salt Life Sound collection. You can listen and download “Take Me To Jamaica” below and also check out the lyrics. Let me know if it transports you to Jamaica as it does me.  Cheers!

Ziggy Marley – Tame Me To Jamaica

Take Me To Jamaica lyrics

Now the sun is in my eyes
And you know I’m feeling fine
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now
Where the reggae rhythms beat
Can’t help but move my feet
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now

Where we can live in the country
Eat fruits from the tree
Everything’s irie
The coconut water is sweet

Where the three little birds they sing
Blue Mountains are happy again
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now
Feel the Caribbean breeze
Stress is calling but I can’t be reached
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now

Where we can meet with good people
Dance all the day
Singing don’t worry
One love, one heart, one aim, aim, aim

Hummingbirds humming by (ooh ooh)
See the pretty yellow butterfly
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now
In the night hear the crickets sing
Fireflies are jamming
So take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now

Where we can live in the country
Eat fruits from the tree
Everything’s irie
The coconut water is sweet

Now the sun is in my eyes
And you know I’m feeling fine
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now
Where the reggae rhythms beat
I can’t help but move my feet
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now
Take me, (take me) take me to Jamaica now
