Tony Rebel is one of my favourite Jamaican artistes and this song, performed so beautifully by him, is also one of my all time favourites.

And I am pretty sure it is the same for many Jamaicans and Jamaica enthusiast as well; it captures the essence of Jamaica and Jamaicans so vividly.

I particularly love two (2) key parts of it.

First, he mentioned:

A man will left pon a banana boat

And him gone aboard

Because him say every weh better than yard

But when him touch certain countries

See the system of fraud

Him haffi run back a Jamdown

And give it its reward

So true, but also so hilarious! Love it :-)

And then a part in the chorus, he said:

Woi, can't you see

The beauty of this country

Me never know a serious thing

Until me reach a foreign

That's so true. I hear that oh so often!

So without delay, here is the audio version of it, via YouTube!
Its just over 2 minutes long but I tell you 'it sweet'!

Truly and oldie but goodie!

Click the PLAY BUTTON and enjoy!

Here Also Is The Lyrics Of Tony Rebel Sweet Jamaica

Sweet Jamaica man a I and I land that

Me no stop love it

And me know the whole massive love it

And them respect it to man, hear this

Help me big up Jamaica

The land of wood and water

The systems might no proper

But we love the vibes the food and the culture

Woi, can't you see

The beauty of this country

Me never know a serious thing

Until me reach a foreign


Chorus

Say what a nice place fi live, sweet Jamdown

The only problem is, dollars nah run

What a nice place fi live, sweet Jamdown

The only problem is, dollars nah run

Now with the money inna you pocket

And God inna you heart

Crowd of people, what more you want

Reggae music a play, reggae artists a chant

A yah so me born and me nah transplant


Chorus

A man will let pon a banana boat

And him gone aboard

Because him say every weh better than yard

But when him touch certain countries

See the system of fraud

Him haffi run back a Jamdown

And give it its reward


Chorus

Yah so me born, yah so me come from

Yen so me live, and yah me intend fi tan

Regardless of the economic condition

You must admit this is a glorious land


Chorus

Help me big up Jamaica

The land of wood and water

The systems might no proper

But we love the vibes the food and the culture

Woi, can't you see

The beauty of this country

Me never know a serious thing

Until me reach a foreign


Chorus

As a Jamaican, my argument is

Whoever say them clever

Them fi stop the promises

And just, mass production

In all the parishes

And Jamdown will progress

Like all the countries


Chorus

Jamaica and Jamaicans are extremely great

Appreci-love and even some say appreciate

Well since we know that make we concentrate

On how fi make the dollars start circulate


Chorus

From money inna you pocket

And God inna you heart

Crowd of people, what more you want

Reggae music a play, reggae artists a chant

A yah so me born and me nah transplant


Chorus
