The Sound Of The Drums
Angélique Kidjo Lyrics


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
I've been away for so long that I wonder
Fa fa fa fa fa
If the sound of the drums
Still has its power.
Fa fa fa fa fa
I've been away for so long that I wonder
Fa fa fa fa fa
If the sound of the drums

If the sound of the drums

If the sound of the drums

I've been away for so long, it's a wonder:
Fa fa fa fa fa
The sound of the drums
Still has its power. The sound of the drums
Still has its power.
The sound of the drums
Still has its power.
The sound of the drums
Still has its power
