"Africa"
[feat. Phonte]


[Phonte:]
I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers
Of some quiet conversaaaaation...
She's coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars
That guide me towards salvaaaaation...
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words
Or ancient mellllllodies...
He turned to me as if to say
"Hurry boy, it's waiting there for yooooou! "

[Chorus:]
It's gonna take a lot to drag me awaaaaay from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever doooo...
I bless the rains down in Af-ricaaaa...
Gonna take some time to do the things we never haaaaaaaaaaad, ooh, ooh...

The wilddogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing
For some solitary coooompany...
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus
Above the Serengetiii...
I seek to cure what's DEEP inside
Frightened of, this thing that I've becoooome

[Chorus]

[synthesized keyboard break]

"Hurry boy, she's waiting there for yooooou! "

It's gonna take a lot to drag me awaaaaay from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever doooo...
I bless the rains down in Af-ricaaaa...
I bless the rains down in Af-ricaaaa... (I bless the rains...)
I bless the rains down in Af-ricaaaa... (Iiiiiiiiiiiiiii, bless the rains...)
I bless the rains down in Af-ricaaaa...
I bless the rains down in Af-ricaaaa... (I-IIIIIIIIIIII bless the rains...)
Gonna take some time to do the things we never haaaaaaaaaaad, ooh, ooh...

Ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-ba-bum...
Ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-ba-bum...
Ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-ba-bum...
Ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-ba-bum...

(She's waiting for yoooou...) And I can't wait, to see you baby
(She's waiting for yoooou...) I'm, coming home to you
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Ooh, I got to see her, I got to see her
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Cause I'm coming home to you, BA-bay...
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Ooooh, when I just can't wait to see you, yeah...
(She's waiting for yoooou...) And I can't wait to see you there...
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Right there WAITING for you...
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Oh, I want to see you, ohh...
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Whatchu doing to meeee...
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Really wanna see you, baby... ey...
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Come a little closer... *chuckles*
(She's waiting for yoooou...) Don't say goodbye...

Woo!

Um, God bless the rains down in Africa
God bless the rains down in Africa
God bless the rains down in Africa
God bless the rains down in Africa
God bless the rains down in Africa

["Lord blessing the rains, down, in Africa"
Repeats along with the last line as both line repeats until the end of the song]
