歌詞

It was in ancient history four thousand B C

Back up in the jungle in a coconut tree

 

Hanging on a branch up under the sun

Was a meddlesome monkey named Jo Jo Gunne

 

Old Leo the lion came down from the mountain

To get a drink of water from the jungle fountain

Jo Jo the monkey started tellin' him jive

About the elephant who was gonna skin him alive

 

Leo tried to reach and grab Jo Jo's tail

Got mad and went roarin' through the jungle trail

 

He ran upon an elephant beneath a tree

And said put up your dukes you gotta tussle with me

 

An ol' eagle from Asia made a non stop flight

Tryin' to make it in time just to see them fight

 

A crocodile phoned and reversed the charge

Coming all the way from India on a local barge

 

Ol' gorilla heard 'em talking in the lion's den

But Jo Jo bet him three bucks the elephant wins

 

Jo Jo yelled at Leo Go on knock him down

He don't outweigh you but a thousand pounds

 

Leo left wailin' with a left upper cut

 

The elephant took his snoot and grabbed a coconut

Leo fired a beautiful short back cross

That's when the coconut landed up against his jaw

 

Leo grew tired but he wouldn't give in

The elephant all loose beat his jawbone in

 

The buzzard said they fought furious all day

 

He couldn't understand how Leo got away

 

Jo Jo runnin' everywhere spreadin' the news

To the zebras and the leopards and the kangaroos

 

A hoot owl reported everything he saw

Had his eyes wide open they called it a draw

 

Leo limping back with his jawbone bruised

Jo Jo in the trees started singin' the blues

Laughin' meddling jumpin' up and down

Till his foot missed a limb and he fell to the ground

 

Just like a bolt of thunder and a streak of heat

 

Leo covered Jo Jo with all four feet

Jo Jo was screamin' with tears in his eyes

Said please mister Leo I apologize

 

Said if you let my feet upon solid ground

I'll fight you close range fifteen rounds

 

Leo got back to the square of the fight

Jo Jo took a leap and jumped out of sight
