1. It’s been so many years since I’ve left my home
Now that I’m gone I’ve got to return
Those places that I’ve been always seem so cold
Despite their hold it’s one thing I’ve learned
That a man who forgets where he comes from
Will never know where he’s going
And all of those foreign places could never compare
To the freedom I found on….{{more}}

REFRAIN

This island, this island is (repeat 2 times)
This is my home
I wanna tell you now
This island, this island is (repeat 2 times)
This is my home
Oh come take me down from the mountains
Straight down to the sea
From lush green valleys to the Grenadines
Oh I’ll build my home on the island I don’t need no skis
I got nuff, nuff sunshine and cool, cool breeze
This island is home
Youroumei is home for me (repeat 2 times)
This is my home
I wanna tell you that now
Youroumei is home for me (repeat 2 times)
This is my home (St. Vincent is home for me)
Youroumei, Youroumei, Youroumei

2. There is no other place I can call my own
Where I was born is part of my soul
I’m often overcome with a lasting joy
This island boy is proud of his home
And whenever I have to leave again
I know it will never be for a long time
And all of those foreign ways they could never come
Close to the life that I have on….

3. Behold the awesome beauty of my homeland
This jet black sand that flows from my hand
Welcome back home are just the loveliest words
I’ve ever heard I know that I’m home
There are a few other places on this earth
That I can find true sanctuary
And none of those cold, cold places
Could never compare to the warmth that I feel on….
