"Afro Blue" as written by and Mongo Santamaria....
Dream of a land my soul is from
I hear a hand stroke on a drum
Elegant boy, beautiful girl
Dancing for joy elegant whirl

Shades of delight, cocoa hue
Rich as the night Afro blue

Two young lovers dance face to face
With undulating grace
They gently sway, then slip away
To some secluded place

Shades of delight, cocoa hue
Rich as the night Afro blue

Whispering trees, echo their sighs
Passionate pleas, tender replies
Lovers in flight upward they glide
Burst at the height slowly subside

Shades of delight, cocoa hue
Rich as the night Afro blue

And my slumbering fantasy assumes reality
Until it seems it's not a dream for two for you and me

Shades of delight, cocoa hue
Rich as the night Afro blue
Oh, shades of delight, cocoa hue
Rich as the night Afro blue

Shades of delight Afro, Afro blue
