  • I bless the rains down in Africa...

    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"

    Chorus:
    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

    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
    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

    Chorus

    (instrumental break)

    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 rains down in africa, i bless the rains down in africa
    I bless the rains down in africa
    Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

    This thread speaks to me.
    If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.

        Managing to get Kilimanjaro and Serengeti in the same lyric phrase is impressive.

          Panama Red, Panama Red
          He'll steal your woman, then he'll rob your head
          Panama Red, Panama Red
          On his white horse, Mescalito
          He come breezin' through town
          I'll bet your woman's up in bed with
          Panama Red

          The judge don't know when Red's in town
          He keeps well hidden underground
          But everybody's acting lazy
          Falling out and hangin' 'round

          My woman said, "Hey Pedro
          you're actin' crazy like a clown"
          Nobody feels like working
          Panama Red is back in town
          [chorus]

          Everybody's looking out for him
          'Cause they know Red's satisfies
          Little girls love to listen to him
          Sing and tell sweet lies

          But when things get too confusing, honey
          You're better off in bed
          And I'll be searching all the joints in town for
          Panama Red

          [chorus]

            Traveling in a fried-out combie
            On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
            I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
            She took me in and gave me breakfast
            And she said,

            "Do you come from a land down under?
            Where women glow and men plunder?
            Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
            You better run, you better take cover."

            Buying bread from a man in Brussels
            He was six-foot-four and full of muscles
            I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
            He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
            And he said,

            "I come from a land down under
            Where beer does flow and men chunder
            Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
            You better run, you better take cover."


            Lyin' in a den in Bombay
            With a slack jaw, and not much to say
            I said to the man, "Are you trying to tempt me
            Because I come from the land of plenty?"
            And he said,

            "Do you come from a land down under?
            Where women glow and men plunder?
            Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
            You better run, you better take cover."
            Yeah!

            Living in a land down under
            Where women glow and men plunder
            Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
            You better run, you better take cover!

            Living in a land down under
            Where women glow and men plunder
            Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
            You better run, you better take cover!

              In the Jungle,
              the mighty jungle,
              the lions sleeps tonight.
              In the jungle,
              the quiet jungle,
              the lions sleeps tonight.

              Near the village,
              the peaceful village,
              the lions sleeps tonight.
              Near the village,
              the quiet village,
              the lions sleeps tonight.

              Hush my darling,
              don't fear my darling,
              the lions sleeps tonight.
              Hush my darling,
              don't fear my darling,
              the lions sleeps tonight.

                Walking through forests of palm tree apartments
                Scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents
                Down by the waterhole drunk every Friday
                Eating their nuts, saving their raisins for Sunday.
                Lions and tigers who wait in the shadows
                Theyre fast, but they're lazy and sleep in green meadows.

                Lets bungle in the jungle; well, thats all right by me.
                I'm a tiger when I want love,
                But I'm a snake if we disagree.

                    I met you on somebodys island
                    You thought you had known me before
                    I brought you a crate of papaya
                    They waited all night by your door
                    You probably wouldnt remember
                    I probably couldnt forget
                    Jungle love in the surf in the pouring rain
                    Everythings better when wet

                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Its makin me crazy
                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Its makin me crazy

                    But lately you live in the jungle
                    I never see you alone
                    But we need some definite answers
                    So I thought I would write you a poem
                    The question to everyones answer
                    Is usually asked from within
                    But the patterns of the rain
                    And the truth they contain
                    Have written my life on your skin

                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Its makin me crazy
                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Its makin me crazy

                    You treat me like I was your ocean
                    You swim in my blood when its warm
                    My cycles of circular motion
                    Protect you and keep you from harm
                    You live in a world of illusion
                    Where everythings peaches and cream
                    We all face a scarlet conclusion
                    But we spend our time in a dream

                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Its makin me crazy
                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Its makin me crazy

                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Its makin me crazy
                    Jungle love its drivin me mad
                    Make America Great For Once.
