A conjuring up of the romantic carefree mood of island life… A classic tale of what happens along the winding road of love.

This is Gregory Abbott as we've come to love him.


Down in Jamaica, they got
lots of pretty women

Ooo they're so sexy
they'll just break your heart

Lonesome Sue, she's in love
with old Sam

Take him from the fire to the frying pan

On and on

She just keeps on trying

And she smiles

When she feels like crying

On and on, on and on, on and on

That poor ol' Jimmy sits alone in the moonlight

He saw his woman kiss another man

So he takes a ladder, steals the stars from the sky

Puts on Sinatra and starts to cry

On and on

He just keeps on trying

And he smiles

When he feels like crying

On and on, on and on, on and on

When the first time
is the last time

It makes you feel so bad

But if you know it,
try to show it

Hold on tight,
don't let her say, "Goodnight"

I got the sun on my shoulders
and my toes in the sand

My woman's left me for some other man

Oh but I just don't care,
gonna dream and stay tan

Toss up my heart to see where it lands

On and on

Gonna keeps on trying

gonna smile

When I feel like dying

On and on, on and on, on and on
