Over Kilimanjaro, she guards her young
Speaks to the darkness in the mother tongue
She waits and she watches all night long
Calls to her lover then she sings this song

I will be there for you, whatever comes
I am as constant as the beat of a drum
My love is stronger than the noon day sun
Over Africa, over Africa

It's a force of nature, it's the power of need
It'll heal your baby, then make you bleed
I will be patient, I will bide my time
I will be waiting like a mama lion, mama lion

I will be there for you, whatever comes
I am as constant as the beat of a drum
My love is stronger than the noon day sun
Over Africa, over Africa, over Africa

See that love and money
Between quiet and sin
We are just wild things
Underneath the skin

In the cradle of creation
We were made this way
Run together
To our dying day
(Change rope)

It's the law of the jungle
It's the angst in trees
Built by your census baby
Die by the tomb

I'd walk through fire
I would swim the seas
As long as I live and breathe
You belong to me

I will be there for you, whatever comes
I am as constant as the beat of a drum
My love is stronger than the noon day sun
Over Africa, over Africa
