Regardless of never entering Africa, ’80s rock band Toto had the ability to make an effective track centering around the continent entirely based on pictures as well as docudramas they had actually seen. The track features soft-rock touches ahead of an explosive and memorable chorus, which aided it come to be an immediate classic.

Toto’s full “Africa” lyrics and video

  • [Verse 1: David Paich]
  • I hear the drums echoing tonight
  • But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
  • She’s coming in, 12:30 flight
  • Her moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
  • I stopped an old man along the way
  • Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
  • He turned to me as if to say
  • “Hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you”
  • [Chorus: Bobby Kimball]
  • 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
  • [Verse 2: David Paich]
  • 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
  • [Chorus: Bobby Kimball]
  • 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
  • [Bridge]
    Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you
  • [Chorus: Bobby Kimball]
  • 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
