"Welcome To The Jungle" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler....
Welcome to the jungle we've got fun and games
We got everything you want honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find whatever you may need
If you got the money honey we got your disease

In the jungle, welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knnn knne knees, knees
I want to watch you bleed

Welcome to the jungle we take it day by day
If you want it you're gonna bleed but it's the price to pay
And you're a very sexy girl that's very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights but you won't get there for free
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
Ooh, I want to hear you scream

Welcome to the jungle it gets worse here every day
Ya learn to live like an animal in the jungle where we play
If you hunger for what you see you'll take it eventually
You can have everything you want but you better not take it from me

In the jungle, welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knnn knne knees, knees
I want to watch you bleed

And when you're high you never ever want to come down
So down, so down, so down, yeah

You know where you are?
You're down in the jungle baby, you're gonna dieee
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to you
Its gonna bring you down, ha!!

    General Commenttruth speaker speaks the truth. yeah civil war is amazing, one of their best songs. those lyrics are so true and so deep. they kind of make you face the way our lives are going and look beyond the sugar-coated facade of war in a text-book type setting. i love it when it goes into that hardcore "MY HANDS ARE TIED!" from the soft and solemn beginning. it's great. that song really shows that axl knew his shit, that he cared about what really matters in the world. great songs, great band. what can i say?

    General Commentalright ive hurd a lot of comments i am not to pleased with for one all u kids with ur negative comments must be pretty fucking bored to go into a fan form of bandsu dont even like, and also the last comment, slash was a damn good guitarist, he has some riffs that no man can duplicate, but axel is a lyrical and vocal genius bottom line, nothing more, and u could stick him with any band and he would be great, and this song is straight up about drugs, and ther addiction , heroin and coke, the two main addictive drugs,

    General Commentjust like the video... Axl always told his parents he would be a rock star and they just ignored him. One day he just packed a bag and left for LA...well just read the lyrics.
    Axl was from Indiana and this was just the way he felt-his first impression of HOLLYWOOD.
    SEX DRUGS & ROCK & ROLL

    General CommentLOL. It's funny, Axl started off as a choir boy. And look what he became?

    If you've seen the film clip, you'll understand that the song is about the big city and what it does to you. At the beginning of the film clip, Axl's hair is strait and he's wearing pretty standard close and a cap. At the end, he's got the Rock N' Roll hairstyle and clothes, reflecting what the city has done to him in such short time.
