Kilimanjaro

Zen, heard this on the radio today, thought of you.

Original from
Stand Your Ground (1984)

Kilimanscharo

I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
All my heart is yearning
Like a candle burning in the night
Seasons keep on turning
Sometimes hard to keep up the fight
I will climb the ancient mountain
I will find the last flicker of the light

CHORUS :
I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
I can see a new tomorrow
I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
I cast aways all my sorrows

What a strange strange freedom
Only free to choose my chains
So hard not to weaken-
Just give up and walk away
I will climb the ancient mountain
I will find the last flicker of the light

CHORUS :
I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
I can see a new tomorrow (oh follow me up)
I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
I cast away all my sorrows (oh follow me up)
I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
It thrills me right down to the marrow (oh follow me up)
I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
I can see a new tomorrow

Um ho um

CHORUS :
I’m sittin’ on the top of Kilimanjaro
I can see a new tomorrow.

I’ve reached the sun.

Must of been one of Jaluka’s first albums

I enjoyed this comment from a poster over on Youtube-

“Such an amazing video. I climbed Kili with a group of South Africans and their goal was to do the little kick dance at the top”
