Dream of a land my soul is from
I hear a hand stroke on a drum

Shades of delight cocoa hue
Rich as the night, afro blue

Elegant boy, beautiful girl
Dancing for joy, delicate whirl

Shades of delight cocoa hue
Rich as the night, afro blue

Two lovers dance face to face with undulating grace
They gently sway then slip away to some secluded place

Shades of delight cocoa hue
Rich as the night, afro blue

Dream of a land my soul is from
I hear a hand stroke on a drum

Shades of delight cocoa hue
Rich as the night afro blue

Elegant boy, beautiful girl
Dancing for joy, delicate whirl

Shades of delight cocoa hue
Rich as the night afro blue

Two lovers dance face to face with undulating grace
They gently sway then slip away to some secluded place

Shades of delight cocoa hue
Rich as the night afro blue
