Song Description

Turned down a trip to Jamaica with a long tall blonde to be with his girlfriend. Girlfriend didn't call him and when he went to see her someone else was there. So he regrets not having gone to Jamaica with the other woman.

Story Behind the Song

Actually happened to one of the writers.

Lyrics

SHOULD HAVE GONE TO JAMAICA

(Allen/McCormick/Flowerree)


A LONG COOL BLONDE GAVE ME AN INVITATION
TO FLY AWAY ON A SHORT VACATION
I TURNED HER DOWN TO HANG AROUND WITH YOU
PROUD THAT I'D BEEN TRUE AND HONEST
I WAITED ALL DAY FOR THE CALL YOU PROMISED
NOW THE SUN IS GONE, AND IT JUST DAWNED ON ME

COULD HAVE GONE
WOULD HAVE GONE
SHOULD HAVE GONE TO JAMAICA
SOAKED SOME SUN
LET THE BLONDE RUM RUN YOU OFF OF MY MIND
COULD HAVE BEEN DANCIN' IN THE MOONLIGHT, TOES IN THE OCEAN
NOTHING BETWEEN US BUT SUNTAN LOTION
COULD HAVE GONE
SHOULD HAVE GONE TO JAMAICA

I DROVE BY 'CAUSE I WAS TIRED OF WAITING
SORRY 'BOUT YOUR LAWN, BUT MY SPACE WAS TAKEN
THAT TRUCK IN THE DRIVE SAYS YOU LIED TO ME
I DON'T MIND THAT IT'S NOT TRUE LOVE
BUT I DON'T LIKE BEIN' MADE A FOOL OF
IT'S NOT LIKE I'VE GOT NO PLACE ELSE TO BE

CHORUS

THE HEARTACHE'S WORSE KNOWIN' I'D FEEL BETTER
WITH A BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN TROPICAL WEATHER
COULD HAVE GONE
SHOULD HAVE GONE TO JAMAICA
SHOULD HAVE GONE TO JAMAICA
