TITLE: Bungle in the Jungle
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 2]

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

/ Am - Dm E7Am / / E EG Am AmG / / / E EG Am GA /

Well, let's Bungle in the Jungle
Well, that's all right by me, yes
I'm a tiger when I want love
But I'm a snake if we disagree

/ F FG C - / FG G A - / 1st / F G A - /

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


The rivers are full of crocodile nasties
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

{Repeat Refrain to fade}
