  • Walking through forests of palm tree apartments
    Scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents
    Down by the waterhole
    Drunk every Friday
    Eating their nuts
    Saving their raisins for Sunday.
    Lions and tigers
    Who wait in the shadows
    They're fast but they're lazy, and sleep in green meadows

    Let's bungle in the jungle
    Well, that's all right by me
    I'm a tiger when I want love
    But I'm a snake if we disagree

    Just say a word and the boys will be right there
    With claws at your back to send a chill through the night air
    Is it so frightening to have me at your shoulder?
    Thunder and lightning couldn't be bolder
    I'll write on your tombstone,I thank you for dinner
    This game that we animals play is a winner

    Let's bungle in the jungle
    Well, that's all right by me
    I'm a tiger when I want love
    But I'm a snake if we disagree

    The rivers are full of crocodile nastiest
    And He who made kittens put snakes in the grass
    He's a lover of life but a player of pawns
    Yes, the King on His sunset lies waiting for dawn
    To light up His Jungle as play is resumed
    The monkeys seem willing to strike up the tune

    Let's bungle in the jungle
    Well, that's all right by me
    I'm a tiger when I want love
    But I'm a snake if we disagree
