  • All bound for Mu Mu Land
    All bound for Mu Mu Land
    (Hey)

    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified)
    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land

    Mu Mu Land
    Mu Mu Land
    All bound for Mu Mu Land

    They're justified, and they're ancient
    And they like to roam the land
    (Just roll it from the top)
    They're justified, and they're ancient
    I hope you understand
    (To the bridge, to the bridge, to the bridge now)

    They called me up in Tennessee
    They said "Tammy, stand by the jams"
    But if you don't like what they're going to do
    You better not stop them 'cause they're coming through
    (Bring the beat back)

    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified)
    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified)

    Mu Mu Land
    Mu Mu Land
    All bound for Mu Mu Land

    They're justified, and they're ancient
    And they drive an ice cream van
    (Just roll it from the top)
    They're justified, and they're ancient
    With still no master plan
    (To the bridge, to the bridge, to the bridge now)

    The last train left an hour ago
    They were singing, "All aboard"
    All bound for Mu Mu Land
    Then someone started screaming, "Turn up the strobe"
    (Bring the beat back)

    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified)
    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (ancients of Mu Mu)

    Justified and ancient, ancient and a-justified
    Rocking to the rhythm in their ice cream van
    With the plan and the key to
    Enter into Mu Mu
    Vibes from the tribes of the jams
    I know where the beat is at
    'Cause I know what time it is
    Bring home a dime
    Make mine a "99"
    New style, meanwhile, always on a mission while
    Fishing in the rivers of life
    Fishing in the rivers of life (hey)
    Fishing in the rivers of life (hey)
    Fishing in the rivers
    Fishing in the rivers
    Fishing in the rivers of life (hey)

    (Bring the beat back)

    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified)
    (Hey, hey)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified)

    Mu Mu Land
    Mu Mu Land
    All bound for Mu Mu Land (ancients of Mu Mu)
    Mu Mu Land (ancients of Mu Mu)
    Mu Mu Land (ancients of Mu Mu)
    All bound for Mu Mu Land
    Mu Mu Land
    Mu Mu Land

  • Nardo Polo from East Of Mu Mu LandThis song was great because of the combination of country and hip hop. It's a demonstration of how great things can be when we join together despite our differences.
  • Pj from Rust Belt, AmericaThis song was absolute magic. Perfection.
  • Fred from Saginaw, Michigan I swear I thought this song was about a cattle drive! Roam across the land, bound for moo-moo land.
  • AnonymousSinister
  • Luke from Manchester, UkNo MJN SEIFER - as noted above, it's the version which ends the White Room album, sung by Black Steel.
  • Sandy from Enterprise, Flso WTF does this song mean? anyone?
  • Camille from Toronto, OhA most excellent, fun song that makes little sense lyrically but is so fun to sing along to. I loved the video also.
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandListen to the song on this site (NOT the video, the sound clip) It is different to the video, and is song by a man rather than Tammy - is it a cover version?
  • Jane from Austin, Txi think this song was great because of tammy wynette.
  • Hanny from Roden, NetherlandsThis song shows what a creative person can put together in a song.I do not believe anyone would have thought of putting this combination together.
    It has become a true danceclassic.Does anybody know what the KLF are doing currently?
