Wolf, Karl - Africa Lyrics

It's gonna take a lot 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

Run the track, Them want to try and hold we back,
Me say wolf and culture are going to the top
Ride the track, The rhythm is so sweet and the dancehall is hot,
Crowd a people never want me to stop
Run the track, We run the show, me say we run the shop, we are the don's #1,
Me say we run that We are the kings in the place, me say we ride on a shock,
Push your hands in the air we are going to burn down the spot!

It's gonna take a lot 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 a lot 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 a lot 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 a lot 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


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

    Bella Blondon

    Wait until you listen to Ocean to Ocean by Pitbull. Then you’ll think differently


    @Bella Blondon Oh I've heard the Jason Derulo version, at least Karl Wolf is singing the right notes and not changing the melody of the fucking song.

  38. jojo nyabaro

  44. Kara n Cal Gould

    Opening line-- gonna take me a lot to drag me away from you --
    But these are always lies.

    And this line, I have learned, from a male, is a lie.

    Best trade ever lol

  60. MrImjusttooawesome

    what for?

  61. Christopher Mobley

    So Canada keeps Karl Wolf, but gives America Justin Beiber and Drake.....not fair guys.....not fair


    Other way around: America markets what it chooses to, from Canada. We can't help it if y'all have really bad taste, and just take whatever will appeal to the lowest common denominator.

    Tia Alexandria

    I’m sorry about that from Canada I apologize for the awful Justin Bieber and drake

  62. nicole niomi
