Oh Jungle with all your splendour, your vegetation so dense,
Appeals to all but one gender. Your borders' so immense.
The king rules with a mighty roar. Songbirds take flight in jeer,
A splendid sight you ever saw! Lemurs quiver with fear.
Oh Lion! King of Jungle, you give the girls such a fright.
They fumble and crumble, the boys giggle in delight.
Giraffe, kind sir, give me a lift. You are majestic and high!
I would like to see the rift, before the sun waves goodbye.
Oh Jungle at night! With your nocturnal song,
The moon dances into sight. Oh Jungle I see the throng!
