Rockin' In The Congo
Rockin' In The Congo, Rockin' In The Congo
So Rockin' In The Congo.
In the African jungle way down deep, all of the animals fast asleep.
Beating on the drum in his native style, You can hear his rhythm up and down the Nile.
A monkey swung down from high on a lim, said I feel that rhythm deap within.
An elephant showed his mighty snout, said what’s this racket all about

Listen to the Lingo, better start to swing,

Said : jump that boy, it’s time to swing, can’t you hear that rhythm ring.
He started to sing, well, the go man go, and he woke up the Buffalo.
None of the animals have a clock, but everybody knew it was time to rock.
The native boy was going strong and they rocked the Congo all night long.
Rockin' In The Congo, Rockin' In The Congo
So Rockin' In The Congo.
Rockin' In The Congo, baby all night long.
