"Jungle Work" as written by Warren Zevon and Jorge A. Calderon....
Lear jet S.W.A.T team
On a midnight run
With the M16
And the Ingram gun
We parachute in
We parachute out
Death from above"
We're screaming now

Where the pay is good
And the risk is high
It's understood
We'll do or die
Stun gun in hand
Where the gun is law
From Ovamboland
To Nicaragua
Strength and muscle and jungle work

Three young men
In a Russian truck
With a little MAC-10
Sent 'em running to the huts
These few young men
The few who dare
To battle in hell
Le Mercenaire!
Strength and muscle and jungle work

    General CommentSten gun, not stun gun.

    Any ThornBirds, this song is a great one. It took a while to grow on me but it really rocks. Turn it up loud!

    General CommentWow. Possibly my least favorite of all Warren Zevon's songs
    But geniuses can'r be at their utmost talent at all times.
