To the Tune of Jamaica Farewell

chorus...

I'm glad to say I'm on my way
South of home to the town, Port A
My heart is glad
And my car's in gear
I'm primed for all the beautiful birds I hear!



Oh, I'm glad to say, along the bay
I drove some miles,
Seeing beauty that wowed...
Then mid-morn - a cotton-filled, heart-shaped cloud!!

Jamaica Farewell by the Kingston Trio
(Song)
