Past the Gulf Of Mexico, is an island where
I lived and loved a long time ago
Disappointed in love, I decided to roam
Sad was the day that I sailed far away from my home

Every dream I dream takes me again
To the island down in the Caribbean
Back to happiness and my Spanish Town home

To the brown skinned girl that's causin' me
To be filled with grief and misery
If she takes me back I will never more roam

Brown skinned girl from Spanish Town lives in my heart
I've tried to forget her but how do I start?
Constantly she's on my mind both night and day
I've known only sorrow since I sailed away

Let the tide and trade winds carry me
To the girl I want to marry me
I can't live alone just on memories I've known

I'm just like a bird that doesn't sing
Like a seagull with the broken wing
Take me off of this ship, let me go home

Brown skinned girl from Spanish town lives in my heart
I've tried to forget her but how do I start?
Constantly she's on my mind both night and day
I've known only sorrow since I sailed away
