Kingston Town
Lord Creator Lyrics


The night seems to fade,
But the moonlight lingers on
There are wonders for everyone
The stars shine so bright,
But they're fading after dawn
There is magic in Kingston town

Oh Kingston town,
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Ooh, ooh, ooh

When I am king,
Surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
Tonight I am king,
And my queen will come at dawn
She'll be waiting in Kingston town

And when I am king,
Surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
Tonight I am king,
Then my queen will come at dawn
She'll be waiting in Kingston town

There are wonders for everyone
The stars shine so bright

There is magic in kingston town

Oh kingston town
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play

When I am king
Surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything
Tonight I am king
And my queen will come at dawn
She'll be waiting in kingston town

I’ll never know what my dad went through as a young man. He was troubled as I am. But oddly enough, he fell in love with Reggae at a young age, in the golden age of flight (where traveling was cheap but risky!) I know he went to a lot of places and was probably the only white dude a lot of times. I’d like to think, somewhere along the way, he was hunkered down in a bar while this tune twanged on; with all the wonderful grainy scratches and notes that makes this song so great. I remember hearing it on a cassette when I was very young riding in his AMC Javelin and Chevy truck

One of the Caribbean greatest voices, clean and melodic. I would have loved to see him gain greater success. Met him at Yellow Bird Club, Montego Bay in the late 60s when Billy Vernon and the Celestials was the club band.and was as impressed
with his soothing tones then as I am now. Long live these beautiful songs and.clean lyrics. So much of what passes for.music these days are so harsh to the senses.

i dont know why, but this song always make me melancholic and nostalgic, a great song!

As for UB40, they didn't ruin anything! Lord Creator only gained from the success that UB40 brought to this song. They are an incredibly talented band and those who are skeptical about UB40's popularity and musical accomplishments should pay a visit to Jamaica and see for themselves how much the locals love their songs. That's real success to me; they are not only accepted, but they are admired and praised for their originality and for their ability to capture the essence of reggae music.

When I heard the song(UB40), it transported me to a magical place and I KNEW without a doubt they were not the original singers. I was correct. Great song.

@Lenny Webb ¡Sir! ... I think you make a mistake. I think the word "best" does not fit into this of the art of music in terms of "established artists". As for the "Isley Brothers" we imagine that IS YOUR OPINION. For you, the Isley Brothers are "better". For some the original version is very good. For others the version of The Beatles is also good. ¿Was my comment clear, sir?

Lenny Webb

@Jesús Neyra Chávez I am not a fan of The Beatles so I am bound to say I prefer the Isley Brothers version because I do. The Isley Brothers version is better than the original.

Jesús Neyra Chávez

@Lenny Webb Lord! ... The Beatles did a lot of covers of other groups or performers. In any case, tell us, did ¿The Beatles "screw up" songs like "Twist and Shout"?

Lenny Webb

@Satta Massagana UB40 also totally ruined The Slickers- Johnny too bad. They ruined almost all of the songs they covered but 'Kingston Town' and 'Johnny too bad' are the main two in my opinion.
