THE RHYTHM OF AFRICA









THE RHYTHM OF AFRICA



From the high mountain tops and the deep valleys below

We hear the sound of people calling for unity and peace

in our land - Our Africa!

---

The sound of the rhythm of the beating of her drums

pulse like blood through her arteries and veins.

The rhythm of her drums call her people to her breast

Without unity their bones will never rest

---


Feel the soil on which you stand My children it's your land

Hear small babies crying while their mothers are slowly dying

in our land - Our Africa!

---

The sound of the rhythm of the beating of her drums

pulse like blood through her arteries and veins.

The rhythm of her drums call her people to her breast

Without unity their bones will never rest

---

Deep in the jungles of Africa we hear lions roar

Just over the border sound the guns from the men of war

in our land - Our Africa!

---

The sound of the rhythm of the beating of her drums

pulse like blood through her arteries and veins.

The rhythm of her drums call her people to her breast

Without unity their bones will never rest
---

Hear the little children singing while their mothers dance

For Madeba brings a promise of unity and chance

in our land - Our Africa!

---

The sound of the rhythm of the beating of her drums

pulse like blood through her arteries and veins.

The rhythm of her drums call her people to her breast

Without unity their bones will never rest

in our land - Our Africa!

---

The sound of the rhythm of the beating of her drums

pulse like blood through her arteries and veins.

The rhythm of her drums call her people to her breast

Without unity their bones will never rest

in our land - Our Africa!

---
The sound of the rhythm of the beating of her drums

pulse like blood through her arteries and veins.

The rhythm of her drums call her people to her breast

Without unity their bones will never rest

in our land - Our Africa!

---

Where is sound of the rhythm of the beating of her drums ........
