By The Shores of Lake Tanganyika

BY the shores of Lake Tanganyika, I had a moment of my life, I knew such a moment existed, But only in my imagination. By the shores of Lake Tanganyika, I watched it sink in the far west, Inch by inch, second by second, I watched it. By the shores of Lake Tanganyika, I watched its golden rays paint the western skies, I watched them spill on the waters of Tanganyika, And splash over the shores of the lake. By the shores of Lake Tanganyika, I had a moment of my life, A calm serene moment, I had a moment of nature. By the shores of Lake Tanganyika, I watched it descend in the west, With its golden rays clinging to the sky, As dusk descended on earth. By the shores of Lake Tanganyika, The birds on the cliff lay still, and waters calm, The boats in the waters lay still, with no waves tossing over, They all lay still for in that moment of nature. By the shores of Lake Tanganyika, I had a moment of my life, I hope I live to have it again, To watch such display of nature, again.
