I was walking through the jungle, and I
Was looking for good business
Something to take away the risk
Break or bust or call it quits
See an object in the air
See an object touch my hair
I was walking through the jungle, and I
Was looking for good business
My energy is draining
Touching down on my arm
I'm feeling kinda sleepy now
Chorus:
I was bitten by a tse-tse fly
I was bitten by a tse-tse fly
I was walking through the jungle, and I
Was looking for good business
Gotta invest in insect bombs
No-pest strips and firearms
On the tickertape came the note
"Tse-tse fly: no antidote"
I was walking through the jungle, and I
Was looking for good business
My energy is draining
Touching down on my arm
I'm feeling kinda sleepy now
Chorus repeat x2
Swat that fly!
