Lyrics DREAM OF A LAND
MY SOUL IS FROM,
I HEAR A HAND
STROKE ON A DRUM,
SHADES OF DELIGHT
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
ELEGANT BOY,
BEAUTIFUL GIRL,
DANCING FOR JOY,
DELICATE WHIRL,
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

TWO YOUNG LOVERS
ARE FACE TO FACE,
WITH UNDULATING GRACE,
THEY GENTLY SWAY,
THEN SLIP AWAY
TO SOME SECLUDED PLACE.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

WHISPERING TREES
ECHO THEIR SIGHS,
PASSIONATE PLEAS,
TENDER REPLIES,
SHADES OF DELIGHT
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
LOVERS ON FLIGHT,
UPWARD THEY GLIDE,
BURST AT THE HEIGHT,
SLOWLY SUBSIDE,
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

AND MY SLUMBERING FANTASY
ASSUMES REALITY
UNTIL IT SEEMS
IT'S NOT A DREAM,
THE TWO
ARE YOU AND ME.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
