Jungle Blues

An I went off sailin for the Congo,
In a sloop called the mississippi Song-o
Now I'm here singin them Jungle Blues

In a shipwreck, way out on the ocean,
Swimmin blind, lord, prayin and a'hopin,
I washed up singin them Jungle Blues.

Can't you hear them Jungle Drums thumpin?
Buddy, thats' what gets my heart to jumpin,
It ain't nutin but them Jungle Blues,

And the monkeys, goin pitter-patter,
In the darkness, my teeth begin to chatter,
There ain't no cure for them Jungle Blues
