"Bongo Bong/Je Ne T'Aime Plus" as written by and Manu Chao....
Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin' my first bongo

Every monkey'd like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong

I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown

I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie
I'm the "king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Hear me when I come baby
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come

Nobody'd like to be in my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie
I'm a king without a crown hanging loose in a big town
I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong

king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come baby
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come

They say that I'm a clown
Making too much dirty sound
They say there is no place for little monkey in this town
Nobody'd like to be in my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie
I'm the king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come baby
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come

Bangin' on my bongo all that swing belongs to me
I'm so happy there's nobody in my place instead of me
I'm a king without a crown hanging loose in a big town
But I'm the king of bongo baby I'm the king of bongo bong
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby, king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong...

Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin' my first bongo

Every monkey'd like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong

king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come baby
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come

Je ne t'aime plus mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus tout le jour
Je ne t'aime plus mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus tout le jour

Je ne t'aime plus mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus tout le jour
Je ne t'aime plus mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus tout le jour

    General CommentI think its correct title is "King Of The Bongo". I've known this song long before Robbie covered it and never really like it, so I'm not very fond of it.

    In his own words: "I didn't pick this song, It picked me. "King Of The Bongo" was played to me by a couple of friends of mine six years ago, and I always thought "I've got to cover this.." and now was the right time.˜King Of The Bongo" to me is like an unwritten Disney Film. How did Lily Allen end up on here? I knew about her as I had met her at the studio. The Lily Allen Phenomenon is not solely contained to the UK she seems to be doing well everywhere...good on her too."

    General CommentC'mon Gabigs!!!! R u for real??? This is THE SONG by Manu Chao.... Is awsome, Manu knows shit!!!

    Robbie just made it pop friendly.... Cause it is already very alternative, urban and modern... That's Manu.
