1. Walking through forests of palm tree apartments,

      Am                                   G                E

    scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents,

      E                                  Am

    down by the waterhole, drunk every Friday,

      E                                         Am

    eating their nuts saving their raisins for Sunday.

      E                              Am

    Lions and tigers who wait in the shadows,

                 E                                      Am

    they're fast but they're lazy, and sleep in green meadows.

 

                   F        - G            C                           F         - G     Am

Well, Let's bungle       in the jungle, well, that's all right      by me.

         F     - G              C                               F              G    Am

I'm a tiger      when I want love, but I'm a snake if we disagree.

 

     Am                                  G                E

2. Just say a word and the boys will be right there,

            Am                                          G                       E

    with claws at your back to send a chill through the night air.

    E                                        Am

    Is it so frightening to have me at your shoulder?

         E                               Am

     Thunder and lightning couldn't be bolder.

            E                                         Am

     I'll write on your tombstone, ``I thank you for dinner.''

             E                                  a

    This game that we animals play is a winner.

 

                   F        - G            C                           F         - G       Am

Well, Let's bungle       in the jungle, well, that's all right        by me.

         F     - G              C                               F                G     Am

I'm a tiger      when I want love, but I'm a snake  if we disagree.

3. The rivers are full of crocodile nasties

           Am                                      G                   E

    and He who made kittens put snakes in the grass, he’s

        E                          Am

    a lover of life but a player of pawns, yes,

            E                                 Am

    the King on His sunset lies waiting for dawn

         E                                 Am

    to light up His Jungle as play is resumed,

              E                                    Am

     the monkeys seem willing to strike up the tune.

 

                   F        - G            C                           F         - G      Am

Well, Let's bungle       in the jungle, well, that's all right       by me.

         F     - G              C                               F              G    Am

I'm a tiger      when I want love, but I'm a snake if we disagree.
