Nummer dateert oorspronkelijk uit 1958 maar Hank scoorde er toen nergens in de wereld een hit mee. In 1971 werd in Nederland een bootleg compilatie album uitgebracht onder de titel "Rock 'n' Roll, Vol. 1". Platenmaatschappij Charly bracht in maart 1976 het nummer "Jungle rock" opnieuw op single uit. Het nummer bereikte de 3e plaats in de Engelse hitparade en stond zelf 1 week op nummer 1 in de Top 40. Hank Mizell was in 1976 53 jaar oud en kwam uiteindelijk toch in de boeken van de popgeschiedenis terecht. Vanaf 1962 was hij geen zanger meer maar was hij predikant geworden.

Songtekst

I was walking through the jungle just the other night
Oh well, I heard a big a-rumble and I thought it was a fight
We stopped there to listen, I began to move my feet
It was a jungle drummer doin' a knocked out beat
It was a jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A knocked out beat and I had to move my feet
It was a jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock

Oh well, I moved a little closer just to get a better view
I saw a chimp and a monkey hat done the Suzy Q
Oh well, a-gator and a hippo was a-doin' the bop, while a great big frog was a-makin' me hop
It was a jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A knocked out beat and I had to move my feet
It was a jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock

Oh well, the fox grabbed the rabbit and they hit the bunny hug
And all the beasts that fly was a-cuttin' the rug
Oh well, the camel was a jitter buggin' with a kangaroo
And the elephant, the mover, with the ring-ding-oo
It was a jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A knocked out beat and I had to move my feet
It was a jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
A jungle, jungle, jungle, jungle rock
