It's gonna take alot 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

[Culture Man speaks]

It's gonna take alot 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

And as I'm walking through the subway
All I feel is everybody's piercing eyes [piercing eyes]
I'm following the footsteps all I can imagine is that I'm a guy
You never know maybe she's afraid
And everything around her is so damn fake
I feel like that we've met before
Hurry boy she's waiting

It's gonna take alot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I blessed the rains down in Africa
We're take some time to do the thing we never had

The sun is rising on east side and every former life is waking us
The feeling of sacloga makes you wanna dream away of fall in love
She drags you in not afraid
Everything is heels like bait
What wrong with you don't let her go
Hurry boy it's waiting

It's gonna take alot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I blessed the rains down in Africa
We're take some time to do the thing we never had

Doobara, doobara, doobra, doobara, doobara,
Doobara, doobara, doobaba, boorr, boobaba,
Dodo, dood, adooro, orooda, dooroo, dobara
Doobara doobara doobara baabaabaa

Hurry boy it's waiting there for you

It's gonna take alot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I blessed the rains down in Africa
I blessed the rains down in Africa
I blessed the rains down in Africa
I blessed the rains down in Africa
We're take some time to do the thing we never had

[Culture Man Speaks]

So sing with me
Now sing with me
This is Africa
This is Africa

    The verse "i bless the rains down in africa" is signifying africa as the craddle of life, as it is known to where life on earth started from. So wolf is just appreciating the life that originated down in africa and because of which he gets to enjoy all the beautiful women that came as a result of all it.

    When i first heard it, i thought i was promoting a cause, in this case, africa; something like musicians who banded together to raise money for the earthquake that occured in haiti a couple of years ago. -looking at the lyrics, it's clearly a love song of either wistfulness of the past or a hopeful future.
