The Lyrics

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Caught the strongest vine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Fought the strongest lion
Jane, she said "Drop by to me tonight
There I’ll let you muse at my delights"
Be crazy not to
I hope that Jai will shoot through
I’ll lay some crap on with the strongest lines

Then to me a good idea, it dawned
How to go, make best use of my brawn
Through air profoundly
Gravity will not confound me
I have been aiming for the longest vines

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Caught the longest vines
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Caught the longest
Fly with poise, I’m hoping I don’t fall
Underneath there’s lions set to maul
I’ll now proceed to
My Jane who’s needing me too
'Cus as it happened, caught the strongest vine

I don’t want chimpanzee along
'Cus that Cheeta’s a fright
And man! Does he pong!
Wanting not a primate-a-trois !
Yup, that’s too bizarre
And I’m not quite that hard up

(Who chose doo-wop background for this song?
Even Edgar Burroughs thinks it’s wrong
When Greystoke dances
Natives squat and look askance-s
Afraid the series is in steep decline...)

To swing through treetops is an art
I’ve honed in myself;
More ease than a car
O-blig-ing this flora, yes it are
Through jungleness I dart
But appears that I "oooopsed", for:

Unaware reticulated things
I have been so fooled by 'pressive rings
I reached out to snatch...
What swings was not a grape catch
I prehended folds and now in snake I’m dined

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Caught the wrongest vine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Caught the wrongest vine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Caught the wrongest vine
(Fade)

Being a non-conformist, I read the list from the bottom up, so my vote/comment is at the other one -- and was written before seeing OMR's here, for the record. .. You guys will do *anything* to pump your song count, eh? ;)
