Africa Song for Children

I think Africa is the most wonderful continent on Earth. The diversity of its landscapes amazes a traveler to the depths. There are deserts and rainforests, savanna grasslands and the snowy summit of Kilimanjaro. That’s why Africa inspired me to write a song for children telling about beautiful nature and different kinds of animals living there. You can use this song for English and geography lessons.

Here are the lyrics:

Refrain
Africa, Africa,
Faraway land.
Africa, Africa,
Miles of burning sand.
Africa, Africa,
Low scattered trees.
Africa, Africa,
Amazing herds of beasts.

1
Once I went to Africa
To see the wildlife.
The whole day the desert sleeps,
At night it comes alive.
Fennec foxes, ostriches,
Scorpions are there,
Oryxes, jerboas,
Caravans of camels.

Refrain
Africa, Africa,
Faraway land.
Africa, Africa,
Miles of burning sand.
Africa, Africa,
Low scattered trees.
Africa, Africa,
Amazing herds of beasts.

2
Savanna meets me with gazelles,
Antilopes and gnus,
Meerkats and hippoes,
And some zebras, too.
Elephants, rhinoceros,
Elegant giraffes,
Lions and leopards
Hunting in the grass.

Refrain
Africa, Africa,
Faraway land.
Africa, Africa,
Miles of burning sand.
Africa, Africa,
Low scattered trees.
Africa, Africa,
Amazing herds of beasts.

3
Then in tropics was my journey
Down the river Nile.
There live a lot of snakes,
And big crocodiles.
Pink flamingoes at the lake,
Thousands of birds,
Gorillas and colobuses,
Chameleons and frogs.

Refrain
Africa, Africa,
Faraway land.
Africa, Africa,
Miles of burning sand.
Africa, Africa,
Low scattered trees.
Africa, Africa,
Amazing herds of beasts.

Enjoy the song and lovely African views while watching the video:
