Mike F., perhaps your friend who was low on fun should have had his wife get a part time job where this guy's wife works.  ;)


"Wild, Wild Kingdom Of Love"
(©2005 Bob Beckley)

Ever since you got that part time
Job at Jungle World
Our love life's so much better
And I've got to thank you, girl
There's nothin' quite like comin' home
To sticks and leaves and vines
And you in your gorilla suit
Sippin' sweet, red wine

Sometimes I dress like Tarzan
And you hyena laugh
Sometimes you play the cheetah
To my curious giraffe
But when you pet my cockatoo
I become a wildebeest
And you become my hunted prey
A tasty, furry feast

Chorus:
There's a wild, wild kingdom
In our bedroom down the hall
Full of jungle love
From wall to wall
There's grunts and growls and hoots and howls
Until we've had enough
In our wild, wild kingdom
Of love

Tonight I'll be a chimpanzee
And you can dress as Jane
And watch me go bananas
When you shake your hippo thang
Or you can be a zebra
And I'll read between the lions
Rhino you know how
To drive me out of my mind

Chorus:
There's a wild, wild kingdom
In our bedroom down the hall
Full of jungle love
From wall to wall
There's grunts and growls and hoots and howls
Until we've had enough
In our wild, wild kingdom
Of love

Bridge:
Our jungle love's a secret
To savor and to save
If Marlon Perkins knew
He'd roll over in his grave

Chorus:
There's a wild, wild kingdom
In our bedroom down the hall
Full of jungle love
From wall to wall
There's grunts and growls and hoots and howls
Until we've had enough
In our wild, wild kingdom
Of love

Bobby Jo,

Great song, love that line about Marlon Perkins rolling over in his grave.

The whole song brings to mind Jethro Tull's tune, "Bungle in the Jungle".

By the way, I was half way to work this morning when I figured out what you were talking about when you said that I wrote "Organ Donor" cleaner than you would have. It was good for a laugh. I think we both need to try to sell our songs to David Allen Coe or someone similiar. It pretty amazing the stuff that they are playing on sattelite radio.

Dave

Thanks, guys.  :)  At least, writing this song taught me how to spell "wildebeest."  ;)
