It was deep in the Jungles of Africa,
Where the bugs is thick as fleas,
And the heat will drive sane men crazy,
And the water's full o' disease
I went out walkin with a beautiful girl,
Where the spotted honeysteppers fly,
We lay down under the bamboo trees,
I sang that Jungle lullaby

Singin, swingin,
On a lazy afternoon in paradise
Croonin, swoonin,
That old time song, where the days are long,
It's a Jungle Lullaby

Well we made it down to a riverbank,
Spied a steamboat comin along,
Then we hitched a ride, lawd, lookin over the side,
Everything was goin on wrong,
There was bird-eatin spiders, big as my fist,
Snakes that hung down like vines
And eyes that watched as we drifted along,
I sang that Jungle Lullaby

Singin, Swingin,
On a lazy afternoon in paradise
Croonin, swoonin,
That old time song, where the days are long,
It's a Jungle Lullaby

Bom-bow-domp,...
Bomp-ow-domp-ay-ohh..
lay-dat-omp
Folks you know, when we got back into town that night,
there was excitement in the air.
I heard there was a party over at the Officers Club, so I took that girl on over,
Man, we walked in the joint, orchestra playin so sweet I thought I'd die.
I got up on that old bandstand,
sang that Jungle Lullaby,

Singin, swingin,
On a lazy afternoon in paradise
Creoonin, swoonin,
That old time song, where the days are long,
It's a Jungle Lullaby
