You may be a sharp dresser, You may be a fantastic dancer, You may be a lively conversationalist, But what happens at the end of the evening when the time comes to show how you feel? Unless you can kiss with confidence all your fancy dressing, dancing and talking won't get you a second date.
I'd meet a boy I really liked I'd start to win his heart Come the time to kiss good-night I always fell apart
I'd giggle like I had no brains Or else I'd start to cough I thought my perspiration stains Would turn a fellow off
She was nervous She was too shy She was breathless Lips were too dry Hands were shaking Didn't know why
Do you want to kiss this person? Then be honest - what is keeping you from kissing with confidence? Worries. Some of them can be put to rest if you ask yourself a few simple questions before kissing.
Is your breath fresh? Do your have spinach on your teeth? Is your deodorant strong enough?
You may also find yourself worrying about what will happen once you are in the act of kissing. Will your stomach growl? Will your braces lock? Will you be able to prolong the kiss and still breathe?
Will I spoil it with my overbite? Will our noses bump in the moonlight? When our lips meet, will they fit right?
These worries are best cleared from the mind by the romance chant method, a technique which will also place your lips naturally in kissing position. Hableme el unico del mundo. Digame: comoe te hare ese sonido. Tan glorioso. Que aun hoba con anticipation de el. Me ha reducio a un bestia. Grunedo. Entusiomandose why paliptando. Practice this chant in the morning as you rise, in the evening as you retire and just before a date.
Once you have mastered these techniques there is only one worry left - will it go too far? It never will if you remain alert to these danger signals - heavy breathing, wandering hands, strong heartbeats. A nice way to maintain self-control without offending the other person is to say -- 'I'm not ready to handle what I think is coming', then you both go home and daydream. Tomorrow you can start again fresh. Just remember - you can not get pregnant from kissing.
I put an end to worrying, I learned the way from Will He showed me kissing with confidence is an acquired skill When my boyfriends get too hot I can cool 'em down Now I'm kissing with confidence everywhere in town
In the schoolyard At the front door In the laundromat At the drug store
At the car wash In the back seat At the Dairy Queen On a side street
In the basement On the rooftop At the drive in At the stop and shop
On the back porch At the candy store On the boardwalk By the seashore
In the balcony At the malt shop In the parking lot On the blacktop
Once you can kiss with confidence, think of others these techniques will help. Do you know someone who drools when he kisses or burps or bites? Why not do them a favor and send them this record anonymously?

A key line in "Africa" is "I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become," which is about drifting away from what you really want in life. Toto keyboard player David Paich, who wrote the song, felt his work was consuming him.
