Jimmy Cliff – Miss Jamaica. Roses are red, violets are blue Believe me, I love you Let's not be apart 'Cause you're the rose of my heart And sweet rose, you are my queen. You're my Miss Jamaica My Miss Jamaica You're my Miss Jamaica I'm crowning you myself. Although you may not have such a fabulous shape To suit the rest of the world But you do suit me and that's all I want to know I need not know nothing more
