The Lyrics

In which I recap Disney's The Jungle Book. Well, the bare necessities of it, anyway.
Mowgli, man cub named Mowgli
Wild beasts for buddies, not alone
Still, poor Mowgli, man cub named Mowgli
Finds beasts so hungry for his bones
Watch out, Mowgli

Yo, don't know much
About Indian jungles out there, man, you know
If I was a ten-year-old, lived my whole life there, man, like
I would lose my shit
This boy's okay with stayin' there, the poor kid's got balls of steel

Poor man cub, as a baby, late one night
He was dumped in a basket, I don't know why
Couldn't afford to feed him, whatever the reason
He was left in the jungle to die
At least he would have, no fear
That black panther, Bagheera, thought that would be too sad
Took him to wolves that were friendly
So that he'd survive and he did so

Mowgli (young Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
Raised with wolf puppies (litter of puppies)
Not alone (fine with his home world)
Still, poor Mowgli (poor Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
Still knows nobody (he knows nobody)
Human, no (he doesn't know, hurts)
Poor, young Mowgli

He may want to chill out with Baloo
But the tiger Shere Khan wants to end his life
Bagheera knows what to do:
Back to the village is where he should hike (Mowgli, hike)
It isn't easy, what with that snake Kaa
Who wants Mowgli for lunch, man, that just ain't nice
Baggy and Baloo think they're right, but
Mowgli's caught in their strife, which just blows

Mowgli (young Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
Doesn't want to leave (refuses to leave)
His one home (jungle's his whole world)
But poor Mowgli (poor Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
Just wants some buddies (wants some good buddies)
He won't go (but he must go quickly)
Poor, young Mowgli

King Louie nabs the boy, cause what will bring him joy
Is to be a man, which makes Baloo
Not be a sloth bear for once, he and Baggy make a run
To save Mowgli from monkey doom
All the chaos makes Baloo wise up and see (Baggy makes him see)
The poor man cub will soon become mince-meat
If he stays in the jungle, so he pleads
But only pisses off Mowgli

Mowgli (young Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
He leaves his buddy (leaves his bear buddy)
Goes alone (runs off alone, no)
But poor Mowgli (poor Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
Acted so huffy (walked off so huffy)
Now he's boned (completely boned jerk)
Poor, young Mowgli

Guess what happens when he's alone (he's alone)?
Well, first a catchy barbershop song (sing-song)
Then the vultures who sang it go
Cause that Shere Khan's here to strike, oh no (oh hell no)
Poor Baloo has got his work cut out (oh-oh-oh)
Paw-to-paw in a one-sided bout (knock-out bout, buddy)
Mowgli works out Shere Khan's a cat who's scaredy (cat who's scaredy)
When things get pretty flamey, so he goes

Mowgli (go Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
Sees that an old tree (really old tree, old tree)
Went "flame on" (lightnin' blazed up, so)
Badass Mowgli (cool Mowgli)
Man cub named Mowgli (man cub Mowgli)
Beats that mad tabby (that vicious tabby, tabby)
Saves his home (old and new home world)
It's time, Mowgli

Now Mowgli (Mowgli), he knows he (he knows he)
Should be goin' (goin') to home, see (man's home, see)
Go, Mowgli (Mowgli), to home, see (new home, see)
Girl knows she's brought in Mowgli

I think the biggest part that I missed out on where the elephants, though they didn't really have any importance on the plot, now that I think about it.
