Intro: G6  Aadd9  Dmaj9  G6 (x2)

G6         Aadd9                
A boy from Florida, 
Dmaj9               G6
Took a trip to the Caribbeans
G6               Aadd9
Umbrella in his daiquiri
Dmaj9                  G6
Sipping, listening to Bob Marley

Guitar melody backing:
G6  Aadd9  Dmaj9  G6 (x2)

He came to get away 
He came to get over it
Sunglasses and his radio,
Chilling, and a head swaying to-and-fro
Whoa! 
Soul Rebel in stereo

You bring the ocean, I'll bring emotion
Together we'll make a love potion
You bring the ocean, I'll bring the motion
Dancing all night in slow motion

[Guitar melody]

He came to get away, 
He came to get over her
Laptop and his cell phone,
Floating in the ocean 'til he's all alone
Whoa! 
Soul Rebel in stereo

[Chorus]

[Guitar melody]

G               A
Don't you worry, boy
Dmaj7          G
Take your time, don't hurry
G               A
Don't you worry, boy
Dmaj7          A
Take your time, don't hurry

[Chorus x2] 

[Guitar melody]

G6  Aadd9  Dmaj9  G6 (x2)

***********************************************************************************

These are the chords I use to play this song:
G6:          Aadd9:       Dmaj9:       F#7/C#:      Fmaj7/C:     
3-5-5-4-0-0  5-7-7-6-0-0  x-5-4-6-5-0  x-4-4-3-2-0  x-3-3-2-1-0  
E:           G6/D:
0-2-2-1-0-0  x-5-5-4-3-0

However, there is an easier way to play the main chords if you find these difficult:
G6:            A (not add9):  Dmaj9 (no3):
3-x-0-0-3-0    x-0-2-2-2-0    x-x-0-2-2-0
