Song Lyrics For Africa by Toto


Toto

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 ancinet 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
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serangetti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become


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

(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 passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I passed some rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Paich then started writing what would become the band’s debut. After the material was written, the band gathered in the studio to begin working on the album. Porcaro had recently seen the film The Wizard of Oz, and began marking his new band’s demo tapes with the word “Toto” so that he would be able to identify them. When deciding upon a name for their group, the members began studying the roots of the word “Toto.” They found out that it is also a Latin word meaning “all encompassing.” It seemed a perfect fit for the band, and so they took it as a name....Read Toto Bio
