The Sound Of The Drums
by Angélique Kidjo

I've been away for so long that I wonder
If the sound of the drums
Still has its power.
I've been away for so long that I wonder
If the sound of the drums
Still has its power. Min bisse kplé bo doté bohissi do houngan lè
Etchi nou min do nounkonton tché dié
Bolonin vodounon djè ho do djiii
Noué do édéo sinyin din
Nougbo wè
Bo minbi non zéta, minbi non zéta
Minbi do nougbo wè Fa fa fa fa fa
