Lyrics:

A picturesque sunset lights up the sky
A magical moment of light passing by
Romantic rhythms that beat through the night
Mother natureís gift for you and I
Oh! Oh!
Africa is my hope

Donít you know that home is
Where my heart lies
Across the ocean
Into the African skies
Through the hills and valleys

Over the mountains
Africa, is where my heart lies

A new day dawns upon our land
Breathing life for the creation of man
Holding treasures of beauty given for all
The African dream. that touches the soul
Of all
Our motherland, our home

Donít you know that home is
Where my heart lies
Across the ocean
Into the African skies
Through the hills and valleys

This is where Iíll stay
The birthplace of my heart
