Sunrise at dawn, night is gone
I hear your song, African lady

The dark fades away, now its day
A new morning breaks,
The birds in the sky, all sing for Africa

Awaits a brights light of the land
And tomorrow is in your hand
African lady

When in the sun and of earth
To you gave birth, African Lady

The sky lends its stars, from the night
To make your eyes bright
Sweet blossoms of scented sheets, wrap you in perfume breeze

The sun sets very hue
Tense with play
Bright roads for you, African Lady
