Toto – Africa Lyrics

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation1
She’s coming in, 12:30 flight2
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation3
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies4
He turned to me as if to say, “Hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you”5

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do6
I bless the rains down in Africa7
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had8

The wild dogs cry out in the night9
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company10
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro11 rises like Olympus above the Serengeti12
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become13

It’s 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 never had

Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you14

It’s 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 rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa
(I bless the rain)
I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
(Ah, gonna take the time)
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had15
