Let the drumming take you back ten thousand years ago

Like a bushman or a caveman or an aborigine

The drummer moves the hands, the dancer moves the feet

Step for step and note for note, they're connected by the beat

We gonna celebrate the ancient way tonight 

Just like a bushman or a caveman or an aborigine

We don't need no stereo, we don't need TV

The time is here, the place is now, you know what to do

Come on and warm your soul in the fire of my drum 

(Come on in and warm your soul / Let the circle make us whole)

Come on and warm your soul in the fire of my drum

Let the spirit find a way to the center of the circle

Do you see the glowing faces, do you see the shining eyes

We got the spirit here tonight, everybody's feeling high

I hear a hundred different rhythms and a single solid beat

I hear a hundred different voices and a single flowing song

I see a hundred different dances and a single pulsing wave

I feel a hundred different souls and a single vital spirit

I'm feeling love tonight

Sweet healing love tonight

Universal love tonight

Everyone's got love tonight

Deep down love tonight
