Dream of a land my soul is from

Beautiful girl
Elegant whirl
Cocoa hue
Afro blue
Two young lovers dance face to face
They gently sway
To some secluded place
Cocoa hue
Afro blue
Whispering trees
Passionate pleas

Upward they glide
Slowly subside
Cocoa hue
Afro blue
And my slumbering fantasy assumes reality
The two are you and me
Cocoa hue
Afro blue
Oh shades of delight
Rich as the night
