The Lyrics

Che-e-e-eat-a-way-ay-ay
Che-e-e-eat-a-way-ay-ay
A swingaway, a swingaway, a swingaway, a swingaway (x4}

In the jungle, the bed game jungle
The Lyin' Starts Tonight
In the jungle, the bed game jungle
The Lyin' Starts Tonight..

Jane loves Larry, but Larry's married
To Sue, and Sue love's Dwight
So, In the Jungle, the bed game jungle
The Lyin' Starts Tonight

Che-e-e-eat-a-way-ay-ay
A swingaway, a swingaway, a swingaway, a swingaway (x2)
Che-e-e-eat-a-way-ay-ay
A swingaway, a swingaway, a swingaway, a swingaway (x2)

Bill meets Heather, they get together
While Bill's wife cheats with Mike
Jill sees Grover, when bowling's over
Their sparetime scores a strike

(Refrain)

Suburb struggles, for motel snuggles
Who cares if it ain't right
Hush my Darling, instead of quarreling
The Lyin' Starts Tonight

In the jungle, the bed game jungle
The Lyin Starts Tonight
In the jungle, the bed game jungle
The Lyin' Starts Tonight

A swingaway, a swingaway,a swingaway, a swingaway (x4)

Sounds like an episode of "Desperate Housewives", better known as "The Lyin' Queens". 5's all the way!

I suppose a part of me should find it sad how very true this actually is...

...but:

Jill sees Grover, when bowling's over
Their sparetime scores a strike

...made me laugh WAY too hard to be sad at all...=) EXCELLENT job!

"Bill's wife cheats with Mike"? I wanna say this again: I did not... have... sexual relations with that woman, Mrs. Clinton. Not a single time. Never. These allegations are false! And I need to get back to work writing songs to make you bozos laugh!

I've come back to this three times now trying to think of a clever way of saying "this is good". You'll just have to settle for the non-clever praise.

I LOL'ed at "Jane loves Larry, but Larry's married To Sue, and Sue loves Dwight" - that's hilarious, and the next verse was just as good - it's always bloody Dwight! - 555
