    Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like a lepress above the Serengeti

    Artist: Toto
    Song: Africa
    Real Lyric: Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

    The story:

    You know, after seeing the correct lyrics here, then confirming the correct ones on Toto's official site, I have to say I'm pretty embarassed. I've been singing it wrong, even in performances (!!!) since 1984.
    In retrospect, I realize that a female leopard would be a leopardess, not a lepress.
    The question now becomes, why would Olympus be rising above the Serengeti???????

    And I always heard it as "Empress", which made perfect sense given the majesty of Kilimanjaro.
