Letter From Africa [song of the homesick South African]
QuickLinks
Words & Music Nick Taylor (p)© Incline House

I received a letter today
A letter from Africa
Who would have thought
Someone so far away in Africa
Would write to me

I took my letter to bed
And dreamed on it all night through
Who would have said
Someone as merry as I could be
Could be missing you

I hear a song, a song of Africa
A song of yesterday
Song me a song, a song of Africa
To wipe my tears away
I have a dream, a dream of Africa
Haunting me in a song
So carry me 'cross the sea to Africa
Cos I've been away too long

You'll never guess what it said
My letter from Africa
[said] Your Readers Digest subscription is due
Fill in this form if you wish to renew

The tears welled up in my eyes
Despair came seeping through
Just when I thought I was dead in the water
I saw your note ...
[it] Said I miss you too ...

So sing me a song, a song of Africa
A song of yesterday
Sing me a song, a song of Africa
To wipe my tears away
I have a dream, a dream of Africa
Haunting me in a song
So carry me 'cross the sea to Africa
Cos I've been away .... way too long
