The Lyrics

A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh
A-weema-weh A-whatthe-hey ?A-weema-weh A-whatdthey-say?
A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A weema-weh
A-weema-weh A-whatthe-heyA-weema-weh A-whatdthey-say?

In the jungle, the mighty jungle
A lion saw two guys
In the jungle, the quiet jungle
A lion saw two guys
A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh
A-weema-weh A-whatthe-hey? A-weema-weh A-whatdthey-say?
A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A weema-weh
A-weema-weh A-whatthe-heyA-weema-weh A-whatdthey-say?

Near the village, he saw one writing
The other reading Zen
Near the village, he saw one writing
The other reading Zen

A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh
A-weema-weh A-whatthe-hey ?A-weema-weh A-whatdthey-say?
A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A-weema-weh A weema-weh
A-weema-weh A-whatthe-heyA-weema-weh A-whatdthey-say?

Ate the reader, case readers digest
and writers always cramp
Ate the reader, case readers digest
and writers always cramp

A-weema-weh A-weema-weh why did I bother anyway?
A-weema-weh A-weema-weh Im running low on things to say
A-weema-weh A-weema-weh uh- have you ever used E-Bay?
A-weema-weh A-weema weh lets forget this anyway

Not too much variation to work with from the original song, I did like how you threw random things into the A-weema-weh lines (especially Ebay)

The more you change the original words, the better it gets! I didn't get verse 3, at first, due to the misspelling, but when I did-- AHA! :)

Fun to sing along to. I had the same experience as Agrimorfee

I concur with my esteemed fellow critics....some good ideas, but just not enough of 'em. 544

I build off fellow critics as well.

to whom it may concern: i really like this song, the lyrics, the music. it is a classic. i didn't know that it was an older song. keep up the good work
Ann Hammond - September 13, 2006 - Report this comment
I chose the song because it is a classic and I needed something small so I can build up my ability to parody.

Well, the way I heard it, there were two lions, one male, one female. (This is a really, really bad joke, so consider yourself warned.) Anyway, the reader was from Poland and the writer was from Czechoslovakia. (Yes, I know, they're two separate countries now, but is sounds so weenie to say "the Czech Republic.") And when the search party got back to the site, all they saw was the two lions. The female lion had a book in its mouth, so the search party concluded that the Pole was in the female and the Czech must be in the male!

545; good job though attempting to capture the nearly impossible number of ad-libbed and background vocals in the song.
