01 Jungle Jam

Rebecca Nile ©2006

I went to the jungle the other night
I thought I was asleep but to my delight
I was peeking out between the coconut trees
And what do you think I saw looking at me.
There was a crazy cat with big black eyes
With stripes on his back but to my surprise
When he started to grin I said “my gosh!”
Then fell into a puddle splish splosh splish splosh.
Landed on my toosh the water went splat
“But that ‘ol fur ball was a real cool cat.”
Got out his horn and he started to swing
Hear those jungle cat’s start to sing.

Next came the elephant he big and fat
He splashing the water all over his back
When he reached out to take a peanut or three
He sneezed “Oh No!” all over me.
I handed him a tissue and he blew his trunk
While the band hit that funk.

Drum go shika talka shika ta bam bam
Drum go shika talka shika ta bam bam
Drum go shika talka shika ta bam bam
Shakita pockita it’s the jungle jam

Bang your drums clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam
Bang your drums and clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam

I spotted the monkeys chattering up in a tree
I could have sworn they were speaking to me saying
‘Bang your drums clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam”

Rosie the hippo by the swimming hole
She shaking her patutti yeah she ready to roll
The rhino and the cheetah and the cockatoo
Join right in with the hoochi-coo
Here come the lion with his great big roar
I’m certain he was saying that he wanted more
The big baboon he started to croon
Croon to the tune of the – bossy bassoon

The hyenas giggle and the zebras prance
They ask the emus if they want to dance
What’s going on now, now I can’t be sure
But that big ‘ol lion he begin to purr
The elephants tap, the monkeys clap
Then the entire jungle begins to rap….

Bang your drums clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam
Bang your drums and clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam
Bang your drums clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam
Bang your drums and clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam

Jiggy wiggy jiggle
Wally willy goo
This isn’t anything like the zoo
When I saw the giraffe with the big long neck
You know he winked at me said “I’ve got your back”
Jiggy wiggy jiggle
Wally willy goo
This isn’t anything like the zoo
The moon was out and the stars they shone
It was the middle of the night and not a single yawn
The tiger was a laughing and he smiled at me
“Join in with us now counting one two three,
You’re welcome anytime you know we like to play
We’ll do the jungle jam yeah, hey, hey, hey!”

Drum go shika talka shika ta bam bam
Drum go shika talka shika ta bam bam
Drum go shika talka shika ta bam bam
Shakita pockita it’s the jungle jam

Bang your drums clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam
Bang your drums and clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam
Bang your drums clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam
Bang your drums and clap your hands
We all join in for the jungle jam…
We all join in for the jungle jam…
We all join in for the jungle jam.
