Jungle Rock

Hank Mizell

(H. Mizell - J. Bobo - B. Collins - R. Simonton, EKO 506, 1958 - KING 5236, 1959)

I was walkin' through the jungle just the other night
Well, I heard a big rumble and I thought it was a fight
We were lost and we listened and began to move my feet
It was a jungle drum a-doin' a knock-out beat

[Chorus]
It was a jungle-jungle-jungle-jungle rock
A jungle-jungle-jungle-jungle rock
A jungle-jungle-jungle-jungle rock
A jungle-jungle-jungle-jungle rock
A knock-out beat and I had to move my feet
It was a jungle-jungle-jungle-jungle rock

Well, I moved a little closer just to get a better view
I saw a chimp and a monkey a-doin' the Suzie Q
Well, a gator and a hippo was doin' the bop
While a great big falcon was a makin' me hop

Well the fox grabbed the rabbit and did the bunny-hop
And all the fish stepped by and was a-cuttin' the rug
Well, a camel was a jitterbuggin' with a kangaroo
And the elephant was movin' with a ring-dang-doo
