Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Headin' for the islands
We're ready man and packed to go
Ooh
When we hit those islands
There's gonna be a big hello
Ooh
Diggin' all the sunshine
It's easy not to say goodbye
Bye, Bye, Bye

Headin' for the islands
Heyeah, We're really flyin' high
Ooh
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home
Ooh

Walkin' down the beaches
Tomorrow mornin' we'll be there
Ooh
Golden sandy beaches
Say, I can smell the breezy air
Ooh
One more celebration
And then we're ready for goodbye
Bye, Bye,Bye

Walkin' down the beaches
Heyeah, We're really flyin' high
Ooh
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home
Ooh

Going back home
Going back home
Going back home
Going back home

Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home
Gotta go home, home, home




Gotta go home, home, home

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Boney M.'s song Gotta Go Home are about the joy and excitement of traveling to an island destination for a holiday. The song's narrator expresses enthusiasm for the adventure that awaits them upon arrival as they anticipate the pleasant weather and relaxation of the beach. The term "big hello" suggests that the singer has been looking forward to this vacation and may be meeting family or friends on the island. As they bask in the sun, they are enjoying themselves so much that it becomes difficult to contemplate leaving.


In the second verse, the singer continues to describe their arrival on the island, walking down the beach and taking in the sights and smells of the tropical environment. The sun, sand and breeze make for an ideal setting for their upcoming celebration. However, the singer acknowledges that the vacation will have to come to an end, and they must eventually depart the island and return home. The repetition of "gotta go home" reinforces this sense of duty to leave, and the final lines state they are "going back home."


Overall, the tone of Boney M.'s Gotta Go Home is one of excitement and joy, as the singer describes their adventures on a tropical island while also acknowledging that their time there must end. The song captures the feeling of wanting to stay on vacation forever, but ultimately accepting the necessity of returning to reality.

เนื้อเพลง ต้องกลับบ้าน
ศิลปิน โบนี่ เอ็ม

มุ่งหน้าไปยังเกาะต่างๆ
เราพร้อมแล้วและเตรียมออกเดินทาง
เมื่อเราตีเกาะเหล่านั้น
จะมีการสวัสดีครั้งใหญ่
ขุดแสงแดดทั้งหมด
มันง่ายที่จะไม่บอกลา
ลาก่อน ลาก่อน
มุ่งหน้าไปยังเกาะต่างๆ
เฮ้..ใช่แล้ว เราบินได้สูงจริงๆ
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน
เดินลงไปตามชายหาด
พรุ่งนี้เช้าเราจะไปถึงที่นั่น
หาดทรายสีทอง
บอกว่าฉันได้กลิ่นอากาศที่สดชื่น
อีกหนึ่งการเฉลิมฉลอง
แล้วเราก็พร้อมที่จะอำลา
ลาก่อน ลาก่อน
เดินลงไปตามชายหาด
เฮ้..ใช่แล้ว เราบินได้สูงจริงๆ
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
กำลังกลับบ้าน
กำลังกลับบ้าน
กำลังกลับบ้าน
กำลังกลับบ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน บ้าน บ้าน
ต้องกลับบ้าน

This song is way ahead of its time! It sounds like a song between the very late 1990s and early 2000s (from the radio).

@Link--sv8fj

It was sampled in Duck Sauce's 'Barbra Streisand', maybe that's why

@maxicupcake

@@Link--sv8fj Jesus, guess what…you are right! :). That was the song I probably heard on the radio as a kid (now am 21 years old)

@Buenopablito

@@maxicupcakethe remix was a hit 10 years ago so no wonder why. It was a big surprise for me when I heard this for the first time as the original song.

@Plexpara

@@Link--sv8fj This right here is also just a Sample btw. The original Song is "Nighttrain - Hallo Bimmelbahn"
Frank Farian (Mastermind behind Boney M.) was a Fan of that Band and met them in a Studio.
He asked if he can sample their Song and they actually recorded it new together. Extra for that Boney M. Song.

You will never get tired of listening to music in the style of the 70s. The best music for me, this music can be listened to forever...🎵

Verdade! Para sempre! Forever!

Too much agree with you. Moscow, Russia🇷🇺. 2024. I

@yassine9508

Everytime you listen to Boney M, you think this is their best one, and then you hear another song from them, and then you think, no this is their best one. They are all master pieces.
