INTRO . . . . .
She was born in Da-ko-ta
where she froze to death each win-ter

But she dreamed a-bout the is-lands
by the fire - burn-ing splint-ers

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
Al-most par-a-dise

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
It was al-most real - nice

So she moved on down the bor-der
with the sun-shine but no sea breeze
Though she could not drink the wat-er

Some of the streets were
lined with palm trees

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
Al-most par-a-dise

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
It was al-most real - nice

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

. . . . . . .

E-lec-tric fan on the ta-ble
Show-er is her wat-er-fall

She may nev-er have Ja-mai-ca
But in her kind she has it all

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
Al-most par-a-dise

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
It was al-most real - nice

She loved the hur-ri-cane warn-ings
and the trop-i-cal breeze

She loves the co-co-nuts and loves songs
with a lit-tle Reg-gae beat

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
Al-most par-a-dise

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
It was al-most real - nice

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
Al-most par-a-dise

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
It was al-most real - nice

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
Al-most par-a-dise

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
It was al-most real - nice

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
Al-most par-a-dise

It was al-most Ja-mai-ca
It was al-most real - nice
