    Lyrics

    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 old 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 drag me away from you
    There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
    I bless the rains down in Africa
    We're gonna take some time to do the things we never have
    Ooh ooh

    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
    We're gonna take some time to do the things we never have
    Ooh ooh

    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)''

    I bless the rains down in Africa ''(I bless the rains)''
    I bless the rains down in Africa
    I bless the rains down in Africa ''(I'm gonna take some time)''
    Gonna take some time to do the things we never have
    Ooh ooh

      I'm surprised all of you die hard Toto fans don't see the error in the lyrics... Olympus? Really! It's Mt Everest... Everyone should listen again so you can hear it .... it's very plainly sung...
