The Jungle Line (LP版) - Joni Mitchell (琼妮·米切尔)

Written by:Joni Mitchell

 

Rousseau walks on trumpet paths

 

Safaris to the heart of all that jazz

 

Through I bars and girders through wires and pipes

The mathematic circuits of the modern nights

 

Through huts through harlem through jails and gospel pews

Through the class on park and the trash on vine

Through Europe and the deep deep heart of dixie blue

 

Through savage progress cuts

 

The jungle line

 

In a low cut blouse she brings the beer

 

Rousseau paints a jungle flower behind her ear

 

Those cannibals of shuck and jive

They'll eat a working girl like her alive

 

With his hard edged eye and his steady hand

 

He paints the cellar full of ferns and orchid vines

 

And he hangs a moon above a five piece band

 

He hangs it up above

 

The jungle line

 

The jungle line the jungle line

 

Screaming in a ritual of sound and time

 

Floating drifting on the air conditioned wind

 

And drooling for a taste of something smuggled in

 

Pretty women funneled through valves and smoke

 

Coy and bitchy

 

Wild and fine

 

And charging elephants and chanting slaving boats

 

Charging chanting down

 

The jungle line

 

There's a poppy wreath on a soldier's tomb

There's a poppy snake in a dressing room

 

Poppy poison

 

Poppy tourniquet

 

It slithers away on brass like mouthpiece spit

 

And metal skin and ivory birds

Go steaming up to rousseau's vines

They go

 

Steaming up to Brooklyn bridge

 

Steaming steaming steaming up

 

The jungle line
