I hear the drums echoing tonightBut she hears only whispers of some quiet conversationShe's coming in, 12:30 flightThe moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvationI stopped an old man along the wayHoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodiesHe 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 youThere's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever doI bless the rains down in AfricaGonna take some time to do the things we never hadThe wild dogs cry out in the nightAs they grow restless, longing for some solitary companyI know that I must do what's rightAs sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the SerengetiI seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've becomeIt's gonna take a lot to drag me away from youThere's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever doI bless the rains down in AfricaGonna take some time to do the things we never hadHurry boy, she's waiting there for youIt's gonna take a lot to drag me away from youThere's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever doI bless the rains down in AfricaI 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 AfricaI bless the rains down in Africa(Ah, gonna take the time)Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
