I hear the drums echoing tonight 
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in, 12:30 flight 
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
 Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

It's gonna take a lot to take 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

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 
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti 
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become 

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 you

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 had
