      About "Jamaica Mistaica"

      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "Jamaica Mistaica"

      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 dodgin' cannonballs
      I've seen too 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

      [Chorus:]
      Come back, come back back to Jamaica
      Don't chu know we made a big mistaica
      We'd be so sad if you told us good-bye
      And we promise not to shoot you out of the sky

      It was a beautiful day, the kind you want to toast
      We were tree top flyin' movin' west along the coast
      Then we landed in the water, just about my favorite thrill
      When some asshole started firing as 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 their faces when they finally realized
      We were not some coked up cowboy sporting guns and alibis

      [Chorus]

      They shot from the lighthouse, they shot from highway
      They shot from the top of the cliff, they had 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 foe being way too nice
      But it's just another shitty day in paradise

      [Chorus]
