It's A Jungle Out There

  • It's a jungle out there
    Disorder and confusion everywhere
    No one seems to care
    Well I do
    Hey, who's in charge here?
    It's a jungle out there
    Poison in the very air we breathe
    Do you know what's in the water that you drink?
    Well I do, and it's amazing
    People think I'm crazy, 'cause I worry all the time
    If you paid attention, you'd be worried too
    You better pay attention
    Or this world we love so much might just kill you
    I could be wrong now, but I don't think so
    'Cause there's a jungle out there
    It's a jungle out there

    It's a jungle out there
    Violence and danger everywhere
    It's brother against brother
    Pouding on each other
    Like they would make a mess
    It's a jungle out there
    It's a jungle here too
    You got a tap right on your phone
    A microphone and camera check on everything you do
    Call it paranoia as the saying goes
    Even paranoids have their meek

    I'm not the one who's crazy, I'm not afraid of them
    They're afraid of you and me
    I could be wrong there, but I don't think so
    'Cause it's a jungle out there
    It's a jungle out there

    It's a jungle out there
    Even the cops are scared today
    So if you see a uniform
    Do exactly what they say
    Or make a run for it
    I'm only kidding with ya

    'Cause it's a jungle out there
    It's a jungle out there Writer/s: RANDY NEWMAN
