about

A while back I got to vacation in Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was a wonderfully fun and relaxing experience, and I could feel a reggae tune brewing. One day, while looking through the books and magazines in the gift shop, I found a book of Jamaican phrases. I picked it up, opened it to a random page, and my eyes went straight to the phrase "All fruits ripe" which means "Everything is just great. All is good." I immediately knew I had discovered the title of my yet to be written song. The phrase summed up exactly how I felt, and I spent the next few nights out on the balcony drinking Red Stripe and writing this song. Interesting side note - the cover of my CD "Rescue Me" is a picture I took while in Jamaica.

lyrics

I could be working, making money with my hands
Instead I'm walking by the ocean in the sand
No need to worry about the hours of the day
A cool breeze is blowing, and that is why I say

All Fruits Ripe
Everything is all right

The daily grind back home cannot reach across the sea
Important deadlines pass right on by without me
I could use more time like this, a simpler life for me to lead
When I get back home, I hope the laid back style comes with me

All Fruits Ripe
Everything is all right
All Fruits Ripe
Everything is all right

Some may say I've had my day
But I want to hold on to this feel a little longer

All Fruits Ripe
Everything is all right
All Fruits Ripe
Everything is all right
Some may say that I've had my day
But I want to hold on to this feel a little longer
I could be working with my hands
Instead I'm walking in the sand
