Just like the sun,
Light up the earth,
You light up my life.
The only one I've ever seen
With a smile so bright
Just yesterday
You came around my way
You change my whole scene way
With your astonishing beauty.
Oh, you could make a brighter scene
An ordinary thing
A supernatural being
And oh, you are brighter than the moon
Brighter than the star
I love you just the way you are.

And You are my african queen
The girl of my dreams
You take me where I've never been
You make my heart go ting-a-ling-a-ling
Oh and, you are my african queen
The girl of my dreams
And you remind me of a thing
And that is the african beauty.

Out of a million
You stand out tall
The outstanding one
I look into your eyes
Girl what I see is paradise
You captivated my soul
Na everyday I want you mooooore
How can I deny this feeling
I'm feeling inside
No one gonna take your place
Gonna take your space
It's a fact that cannot erase
And oh, you are the one that makes me smile
Make me flow like a boat upon the nile

Girl,
You are my african queen
The girl of my dreams
You take me where I've never been
You make my heart go ting-a-ling-a-ling
Oh, you are my african queen
The girl of my dreams
And you remind me of a thing
And that is the african beauty.

You are my african queen
And I know see I know
You are my african queen
And I know see I know
See I know what I am feeling
In my heart and in my soul
Oh I know that is love
And I know that it love
Was surely sent from up above
Cos you're the only one that I think of
You are my african queen
And I know that this means that
You're the only one that I reserve
I give you
My heart, my love, my body and my money
Any other thing you think of
In a man, who could think of anything better than you
Who could think of ever hurting you
Sacrifice my all I've given unto you
You are my african queen for real

(Chorus till fade)
