Jimmy Buffett Jamaica Songs:

Much is known about Jiffy Buffett's entrepreneurial endeavors here in Jamaica, primarily though the Margaritaville Jamaica brand.

But many persons was not aware of his songs - were you?  
And the story behind his original song - Jamaica Mistaica is rather interesting...

The records show that in 1996 his plane, the Grumman HU-16, he called the "Hemisphere Dancer", was shot at by the Jamaican police. Apparently, they believed that it was an aircraft that was smuggling marijuana.

Buffett and his team (and friends, including Chris Blackwell) were however, not on board at the time of the incident. It is said that our government acknowledged and apologized to Mr. Buffett for the mistake.

That provided the background, and perhaps the inspiration, for him to pen the song, appropriately called "Jamaica Mistaica" :-)

The following is the lyrics to the song.

Lyrics Of Jamaica Mistaica
by Jimmy Buffett

Some folks say that I've got the perfect life.

Three swell kids, lots of toys and a lovely wife.

I fly. I sail. I throw caution to the wind.

Drift like a stratus cloud above the Caribbean.


But every now and then

The dragons come to call.

Just when you least expect it you'll be dodging cannon balls.

I've seen to much not to stay in touch with a world full of love and luck.

I've got a big suspicion 'bout ammunition.

I never forget to duck.


Come back

Come back

Back to Jamaica

Don't you know we made a big mistaica

We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye

And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky


It was a beautiful day

The kind you want to toast

We were treetop flyin'

Movin' west along the coast

Then we landed in the water

Just about my favorite thrill

When some ass*** started firin'

When we taxied to Negril


Just about to lose my temper

As I endeavored to explain

We had only come for chicken

We were not a ganja plane

Well you should have seen there faces

When they finally realized

We were not some coked up cowboys

Sportin' guns and alibis


Come back

Come back

Back to Jamaica

Don't you know we made a big mistaica

We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye

And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky


They shot from the lighthouse

They shot from the highway

They shot from the top of the cliff

They'd all gone haywire

We're catchin' fire

And there wasn't even a spliff


Well the word got out

All over the island

Friends, strangers, they were all apologizin'

Some thought me crazy for bein' way to nice

But it's just another shitty day in paradise


Come back

Come back

Back to Jamaica

Don't you know we made a big mistaica

We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye

And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky


Come back

Come back

Back to Jamaica

Don't you know we made a big mistaica

We'd be so sad if you told us goodbye

And we promise not to shoot you, promise not to shoot you,

Promise not to shoot you out of the sky

Below (also) is the lyrics of the favourite and popular island ballad Jamaica Farewell, as song by Jimmy Buffet. Please note that this song was written by Burgie, Irving.

Jamaica Farewell Song

Down the way where the nights are gay

And the sun shines daily on the mountain top

I took a trip on a sailing ship

But when I reached Jamaica I made her stop


Now I'm sad to say

I'm on my way (on my way)

I won't be back for many a day

My heart is down

My head is turning around

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town


Sounds of laughter everywhere

And the dancing girls sway to and fro

I must declare my heart is there

Though I have been from Maine to Mexico


Still I'm sad to say

I'm on my way (on my way)

I won't be back for many a day

My heart is down

My head is turning around

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town


Down at the market you can hear

Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear

Ackev rice, salt fish are nice

Oh the rum is fine anytime of year


Now I'm sad to say

I'm on my way (on my way)

I won't be back for many a day

My heart is down

My head is turning around

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town


Down the way where the nights are gay

And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop

I took a trip on a sailing ship

But when I reached Jamaica I made her stop


Now I'm sad to say

I'm on my way (on my way)

I won't be back for many a day

My heart is down

My head is turning around

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
