"Jungle Man" as written by Jack Sherman, Cliff Martinez, Michael Peter Balzary and Anthony Kiedis....
Deep inside the soul hole of mother earth
Father time came with a supersonic supersonic burst
His soul monkey sperm tribes racing to be first
Her ruby fruit jungle givin' bush baby bush baby birth
The baby was a boy but I think what stunned her
Is that this bare breasted baby was a baby boy boy boy boy wonder
Crackin' from his thumb bone came felonious thunder
Fill the sky with hellfire from way down down down under

I am a jungle man I am a jungle man I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I can
I am a jungle man I am a jungle man I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I can

Erupting from the ground in Hollywood he glowed
His jungle turned to concrete his funk bone bone bone bone to stone
Like a full blown volcano I must let it be known
That through this boy's vein atomic lava blood flows and flows
His soul shocking sounds they make the mountains moan
This boy's become a man it's time to take take take take the throne

I am a jungle man I am a jungle man I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I can
I am a jungle man I am a jungle man I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I

I am a jungle man I am a jungle man I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I can
I am a jungle man I am a jungle man I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I can

I am a jungle man I am a jungle man I am a jungle man

    General CommentI reckon this song's about flea, you know..'cracking from his thumbone came thelonious thunder,' correct me if i'm wrong but i think this is a reference to slap bass.
    Also, 'From way down down down under,' probably refers to Australia, which is where Flea was born. (Go Aussie), and about his life, and they've managed to work in some sex references too..hehe

    General Commentman it sounds like hes saying i aint no jungle man.. i guess that makes less sense in the context of the song tho... i love the intro the way he says the verses "supersonic supersonic burst"
