Africa of My Dream


Africa, my Africa of my dream
Here is where I want to be
And here I have always been,
At my end, here is where I will sleep.
Africa, I have been away for so long
Please don't cry for me dear mother
Twenty years is a long time to be
Away from home,
But I am still here, my one home
My Africa, my Africa of my dream
Many are leaving, leaving for America,
But I am still here and here
Is where I will always be,
My Africa is my America.
We are working towards that,
A better Africa, a great Africa!
This is Africa of my dream,
My Africa is my America.
