I Bless the Padouk Here from Africa

Padouk, PurezaWood’s newest species of hardwood flooring, is a beautiful, exotic wood from the plains of Africa. We decided to celebrate Padouk’s uniqueness through the majesty of song – specifically to the tune of “Africa” by Toto.

I’ll hear the house echoing tonight

Padouk absorbs whispers of a quiet conversation

It’s coming in, 12:30 delivery

The sunlit van reflects suppliers that guide me towards installation

I stopped at a tree along the way

Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient memories

The leaves rustled as if to say, “Hurry boy, Padouk’s waiting there for you”

 

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from Padouk

There’s nothing that a hundred hardwood oaks could ever do

I bless the woods down in Africa

Gonna take some time stain the floor we never had

 

The reddish-brown darkens in the light

This wood is hardest; Janka measurement of 2219

I know that I must do what’s right

My heart expands like solid wood in the humidity

I need engineered hardwood inside, proud of this thing my floor’s become

 

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from Padouk

There’s nothing that a hundred hardwood oaks could ever do

I bless the woods down in Africa

Gonna take some time to stain the floor we never had

 

Hurry boy, Padouk’s waiting there for you

 

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from Padouk

There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

I bless the woods down in Africa

I bless the woods down in Africa

(I bless hardwood)

I bless the woods down in Africa

(I bless hardwood)

I bless the woods down in Africa

I bless the woods down in Africa

(Ah, gonna take the time)

Gonna take some time to stain the floor we never had…

African Woods, Central Africa
