Africa
oleh: Toto



I hear the drums echoing tonightBut she hears only whispers of some quiet conversationShe's coming in 12:30 flightThe moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvationI stopped an old man along the way,Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancinet melodiesHe turned to me as if to say, Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you

CHORUS:It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from youThere's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever doI bless the rains down in AfricaGonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the nightAs they grow restless longing for some solitary companyI know that I must do what's rightAs sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the SerangettiI seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

CHORUS

(Instrumental break)

Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from youThere's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever doI bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in AfricaI bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in AfricaI bless the rains down in AfricaGonna take some time to do the things we never had
