Africa - Lyrics by Rose Laurens


Lyrics
In dark deep jungle I hear the wild drum
My heart beats faster knowing my time's come.
The voodoo master waiting for nightfall
Draws signs of magic on my white woman skin.
Africacharms me with her power
Takes my soul on the midnight hour
Africadancing till my body burns so hot
Crying to the voodoo god - Africa.I am dancing bare food under a red sun
My sense is high to feel like emotion.
Gazel or panther - I hear a lion roar
The voodoo goddes fills me with all her force.
Africacharms me with her power. ..
In tribal dwelling I lie in cool shade
From heaven opened falling the sweet rain.
From danger hiding between her sharp claws
A shadow is moving bow to the voodoo law.
Africacharms me with her power. . .
In dark deep jungle I hear the wild drum
My heart beats faster knowing my time's come.
The voodoo master waiting for nightfall
Draws signs of magic sacrifice woman.
In dark deep jungle I hear the wild drum. . .
In dark deep jungle I hear the wild drum. . .
Africa
Africa.
