Rockin' In The Congo

Rockin' In The Congo, Rockin' In The Congo
Listen to the Lingo, better start to swing,
So Rockin' In The Congo.

In the African jungle way down deep, all of the animals fast asleep.
My native boy who’s was having the jive, said I ’m gonna make the jungle come alive.
Beating on the drum in his native style, You can hear his rhythm up and down the Nile.
A lion woke up and he let out a roar, I think I’ve heard that beat before.
A monkey swung down from high on a lim, said I feel that rhythm deap within.
An antelope jumped from behind the trees, said, It sure sounds mighty fine to me.
An elephant showed his mighty snout, said what’s this racket all about
A Hyena laughed said nothing’s wrong, cause they Rockin' the Congo all night long.
