"Jungle Boy" as written by Leigh Gorman, Malcolm Mclaren, Matthew Ashman and Dave Barbarossa....
Sir Jungle, sir Jungle, sir Jungle, sir Jungle

Jungle boy don't fear, jungle boy come near

Chorus:

Sir Jungle, sir Jungle, go join your gang, yeah, see your lover going crazy
Jungle boy I view, jungle boy come through

In the jungle, I love to rumble, he's the fat guy, he's the bad guy
When the city turns to rubble
Chorus repeats 6x


See your lover going crazy, so let your body do the talking
He's the fat now, he's the bad now, he understands
In the jungle, I love to rumble with my boyfriend
When the city turns to rubble - ooh the trouble
See your lover going crazy, ... jungle boy
... I love jungle boy

chorus repeats 4x

In the jungle, I love the rumble, he's the fat now, he's the bad now
When the city turns to rubble, he's the fat now, he's the bad now

When the city turns to rubble
... I love jungle boy
See your lover going crazy, ... I love jungle boy

    Song ComparisonThis song is based on a song from the South African group, the Mahotella Queens. The song - Umculo Kawupheli (No End To Music)- can be found on the compilation "Soweto Never Sleeps: Classic Women Zulu Jive." Bow Wow Wow takes the original lyrics and phoentically transposes them (if that makes sense?) into English. This either explains why the lyrics make no sense whatsoever, OR that Bow Wow Wow are complete geniuses.

    SEE JUNGLE, SEE JUNGLE...CITY ALL OVER GO APE CRAZY! (it was the name of the album - DUH !)

    Many other wrongly heard lyrics here. Kierra did a half-baked job - sorry but it's true.

    Those who are not worthy of citing the timeless prophecies of our beloved Annabella Lwin should not attempt to do so.
