Songtekst

I just got back from Africa
To the beat of shuck and jive
Feel all alive and what you are
You know it keeps that beat alive

So from coast to coast people make the most
On the streets of Business Drive
We can feed the birds from Johannesburg
Won't you take a look at them?

The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher
The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher

The jungle life can catch you out
Then I watch you walkin' by
Chatter 'mong the weak on what is real
Well, there's no place you can hide

So from coast to coast people make the most
On the streets of Business Drive
We can feed the birds from Johannesburg
Won't you take a look at them?

The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher
The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher
Yeah!

I just got back from Africa
To the beat of shuck and jive
Feel all alive and what you are
You know it keeps that beat alive

So from coast to coast people make the most
On the streets of Business Drive
We can feed the birds from Johannesburg
Won't you take a look at them?

The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher
The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher

The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher
The rhythm of the jungle takes you high
The rhythm of the jungle takes you higher

Takes you higher, oho
Takes you higher, oho
Takes you higher, oho
Takes you higher, oho

Takes you higher, oho
Takes you higher, oho
Takes you higher, oho
