(Ritmo Calypso)
July 17, 2009
Traditional
This is an arrangement of an old traditional Jamaican calypso song with a Caribbean ambiance.
Take her to Jamaica where the rum come from
The rum come from, the rum come from.
Take her to Jamaica where the rum come from
Then she going to have some fun.

Your mother and the baby may be cold as ice
Cold as ice, yet you don't think twice.
Your mother and the baby may be cold as ice
So you better just take my advice.

And you do and you do the Jamaica rumba
And you shake it like you never shook before you do and You ask the band to play another number
Then you stop for some and more
