The Lyrics

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, a sudden ape surprise...
Deep in the jungle overgrowth
The constant insect bi-i-ites, they blow
We're slowly running out of food
But now I hear a series of mad hoots

Sounds like an ape
An angry ape

Our rifle rounds are mostly spent
If it attacks, we'll be forced to defend
With our machetes and nearby rocks
I hear moving leaves and something leaps, guess what?

Look out, an ape
An angry ape

See it glower and then grin
Think it wants to do u-us in
But if it starts throwing round
His leavings, don't care, I'm leaving right no-o-o-ow

We came to find the temple lost
To research language and forgotten gods
But if this monkey lets poop fly
I'm gonna have to say that that's my line

Don't like that ape
That stupid ape

Hang on, I don't understand
Why's the ape wavi-ing its ha-and?
"Wants to guide us" That can't be
Its an ape, a stu-upid beast
Want to follow that thing? Fine
Had better be wo-orth my whi-i-ile
Through the trees and bush we go
There's the temple! Ho-ow'd it know?

It's just an ape

How did that ape
Know? It's an ape
Can't be irate
Temple's found, great
Explore it, wait
I need to say
Thank you, Sir Ape

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the ape became a knight...or something...
