Lyrics
Deep inside the soul hole of a mother earth
Father time came with a supersonic, supersonic burst
His soul, monkey sperm tribes racing to be first
Her ruby fruit jungle giving bush baby, bush baby birth

The baby was a boy but I think what stunned her
Is that this bare breasted baby was a baby boy, boy, boy, boy wonder
Crackin’ from his thumb bone came Thelonious thunder
Fill the sky with hellfire from way down, down, down under

I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I get all the bush I can
I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I get all the bush I can

Erupting from the ground in Hollywood he glowed
His jungle turned to concrete, his funk bone, bone, bone, bone to stone
Like a full blown volcano I must let it be known
That through this boy’s vein, atomic lava blood flows and flows

His soul shocking sounds, they make the mountains moan
This boy’s become a man, it’s time to take, take, take, take the thrown

I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I get all the bush I can
I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I get all the bush I can

I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I get all the bush I can
I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I get all the bush I can

I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
I’m a jungle man, I’m a jungle man
