The rainy season had finally begun
and beautiful dark clouds
were hanging out above the land

It was time to give the neighbors
their daily dose of drumming,
so two friends began to play,
and while steadily they sank
into the rhythm,
everyone in the neighborhood rose
and began to dance

♫ ♫ ♫

Deeper and deeper they went
as faster they played,
variations revealed themselves
and the seven beat rhythm flowed
for a while

♫ ♫ ♫

Off on a tangent,
almost lost in the rhythm,
one of the drummers went on a journey,
and when he later returned
from that solo trip
he brought the story
to an end

♫ ♫ ♫

Welcome back, friend
Welcome home
