Africa
Toto

I hear the drums echoin tonight
She has only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in twelve thirthy flight the moolight winds
Reflect the stars that guide me toward salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words of ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say hurry boy it's waiting there for you

CHORUS : Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we neverhad

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as kilimangiaro rises like olimpus above the serangetti
I seek to cure what's deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I've become

CHORUS + SOLO
hurry boy it's waiting there for you

CHORUS : Gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we neverhad + Outro
