There's a strange one in the jungle
And I think I here him calling my name
There's a strange one in the jungle
And he's offering death without pain
Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

There's a strange one in the jungle
And he says that death need not hurt
There's a strange one in the jungle
He's got something to quench your thirst
Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up
Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ooooh

There's a strange one in the jungle
And he says that now is the time
There's a strange one in the jungle
Here come the planes, please form a straight line
Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

There's a strange one in the jungle
And he questions all that one thinks
There's a strange one in the jungle
With a new and exciting drink
Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up
Freshen up, freshen up, freshen up

Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ooooh
Guyana punch, wuh-oh, wuh-oh, wuh-oh
Guyana punch, wuh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Guyana punch, uh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ooooh

There's a strange one in the jungle
There's a strange one in the jungle
There's a strange one in the jungle
There's a strange one in the jungle

    General CommentThis song is about the Reverend Jim Jones and the mass suicide that he orchestrated in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978.

    This tragedy is where the saying "Drinking the Koolaid," comes from (although it was actually Flavoraid...I'm not sure who got the better end of this little cultural error, Koolaid or Flavoraid).
