Lyrics

Lost in the Jungle - drawing by Harvey Dog 2020

The devil bird with blurry eyes
stared at the tourists who were lost in the jungle,
Weathermen dance to water their crops
sell their knick-knacks in dusty shops,
Tourists go down fuck the African Queen
natives sell maps to those lost in the jungle

Weathermen dance to water their crops
sell their knick-knacks in dusty shops,
soldiers dance and sing in the slime and mud
warriors scratch sunburnt skin in homes of blood,
Tourists go down fuck the African Queen
natives sell maps to those lost in the jungle

repeat 1st verse

Written: 1987


Notes

  • Here’s a deep-dive into an old song from The Hated Uncles Mk. II. The lyrics are half-finished – I repeat the 1st verse for the 3rd verse.
  • I liked this one! A nice showcase for Paul and Bill.
  • We played a 6-song benefit the following weekend: why did we do “Vacuum Cleaner” and not this one? haha
