Lyrics

Jamaica

Written By: The_Great

Knew this girl
and I was feeling her
and she was feeling me
and I decided to make my move
and it proved
to be the right one
because it was the right one
caramel the way she smelled
the way she moved
the way that she did her thing
she had me going places that I've never been

so fine
so fine in fact
she's the finest female that I've ever seen
in my dream in reality
she had her share of looks so
when we decided to go
to that place where lovers go
that's when I felt her flow
this is one thing I know

Let me tell you about this girl of mine
when I'm inside of her
it feels just like Jamaica
so warm
makes you feel right at home
and I'm needing that

Things are starting to get heavy
I'm reading to taste her
any where I can
the movies or the store
the restaurant
I'm wanting more
of her caramel
you know she feels me up
but I can't get enough of her apple pie
her rain pours down on me
and I can't deny that she is

so fine
so fine in fact
she's the finest female that I've ever seen
in my dream in reality
she had her share of looks so
when we decided to go
to that place where lovers go
that's when I felt her flow
this is one thing I know

Let me tell you about this girl of mine
when I'm inside of her
it feels just like Jamaica
so warm
makes you feel right at home
and I'm needing that

This girl she really had me
I was gone was so gone
the littlest things she did
turned me on inside and I
can't resist her
couldn't go away
everything else suffered
I was dismayed
I was just lay under her sunrays
and just feel her waves
