Song lyrics


That morning sun peeks over the mountains
And all the ninos rub their eyes
When they hear
Hear the jungle rhythm

Those birds are tap-tap-tapping the tree trunks
The busy bee hums as he flies
Loud and clear
To the jungle rhythm

Now you can hightail it out of the jungle
But it never leaves your heart
First you feel that beat start bubbling under
Then you hear the tom toms loud as thunder

Sounds a lot like being free
When you feel
Feel the jungle rhythm
Feel the jungle rhythm

Can't do without rhythm
And when it fills the air
Animals everywhere join in the dance

You'll dance along with 'em
Feelin' it steal your soul
We'll stomp our paws. Flap our wings
Maybe do one or two crazy things

Boom-a-chaka boom-a-chaka
Boom-a-chaka boom-a-chaka boom

Check out those chat-chat-chattering monkeys
Swinging through the banyan trees
Two by two two by two
To the jungle rhythm

Sounds like a wolf pack way in the distance
Singing pretty harmonies
Woo woo woo. Woo woo woo
To the jungle rhythm

Now, you can hightail it out of the jungle
But it never leaves your heart
First you feel that beat start bubbling under
Then you hear the tom toms loud as thunder

Sounds a lot like being free
When I feel when I feel
When I feel when I feel
Feel the jungle rhythm

Boom shaka-laka boom sh-bop sh-bop
Boom shaka-laka boom sh-bop sh-bop

That morning sun peeks over the mountains
That morning sun peeks over the mountains
  It never leaves your heart
It never leaves your heart
It never leaves your heart
It never leaves your heart
  You'll dance along with 'em feelin' it steal your soul
You'll dance along with 'em feelin' it steal your soul
