Lyrics
This is a story I heard down in Wingo w___o,
about a little girl called Jenny who got lost in the jungle.
She was brought up by the actual animals who lived in the bush.
These apes got to like her so much they called her "Jungle Jenny".

Jungle Jenny
raised by gorillas
in the jungle, in the jungle
Got an education
in gorilla formation
in the jungle, in the jungle
From the magazine
the only ones she'd seen
on the cover was w____ and his Walnuts

Chorus:
Jungle Jenny, Jungle Jenny
I need a lot of love and I can't get any
Jungle Jenny, Jungle Jenny
I need a lot of love and I can't get any
in the jungle, in the jungle

Saw his face
from a different race
in the jungle, in the jungle
Then Jenny knew
she had to get through
to w____, and his Walnuts
Jenny was a dreamer
she took a local steamer
looking for w____ and his Walnuts

Meanwhile, deep in the forest,
the news spread that Jenny had gone
There was a rumble through the jungle
and the gorillas, the gorillas all mumbled,
they want their baby back
through the woods
hear them sigh
The apes all stand and sadly cry

Chorus:
In the city
she was a lipstick tester
For w____
and his Walnuts
But back in the jungle
the gorillas all mumble
they want Jenny
they all want Jenny

Chorus:
