The Lyrics

Malcolm, Ray "Guitarzan" Stevens, and any Tarzan fan, should appreciate this. Of course, approximating Tarzan's speech and attaining proper pacing are two contradictory goals, so I had to take a few liberties. Maybe if we imagine the "Oh oh oh oh" as the Tarzan yell, which can't really be typed out alphabetically.
Me find a picture of you, oh oh oh oh.
What hijack my world that night
to merry England past us been cast out of? Oh oh oh oh.
Now you back in my life
me love you again.
Oh, back on the Jane bang.

There circumstance beyond my control, oh oh oh oh.
What phone? What TV? What this "News of the World"?
Fly through the trees like chimpanzee from hell, oh oh oh oh
but you no like living on ground and with flies.
So I fix house again.
Me back on the Jane bang.

The power me be no force you to live like me do.
But me weak in the knees when me see all the tricks you knew.
And me die as me stand here today
knowing that deep in my heart
jungle development will never make us part.

Me find a picture of you, oh oh oh oh
wearing white loincloth you became my wife.
That Frank Buck took you away, was a week, oh oh oh oh
in the jungle life of a lonely heart.
Now you back with me Jane.
Me back on the Jane bang.
