Stranded In the Jungle - The Jayhawks/The Vibrations/The Cadets/The Gadabouts/The New York Dolls/The Voodoo Glow Skulls

Stranded in the Jungle
I crashed in the jungle while trying to keep a date
With my little girl who was back in the states

I was stranded in the jungle, afraid and alone
Trying to figure a way to get a message back home

But how was I to know that the wreckage of my plane
Had been picked up and spotted my girl in lovers lane
Meanwhile, back in the states

(Chorus)
Baby, baby, let's make romance
Your old time lover hasn't got a chance
He's stranded in the jungle, sad as he can be
So come on, pretty baby, just you and me
Meanwhile, back in the jungle

The boys in the jungle had me on the run
When something heavy hit me like an atomic bomb

When I woke up and my head started to clear
I had a strange feeling I was with cooking gear
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/jayhawks-stranded-in-the-jungle-lyrics.html ]
I smelled something cooking and I looked to see
That's when I found out they was cooking me
Meanwhile, back in the states

(Chorus)

Meanwhile, back in the jungle
I jumped out the pot and finally got away
Frantic with worry about what my baby would say

So I jumped in the ocean and started to swim
But my chances of survival were getting mighty slim

So I thumbed down a whale who was heading my way
And I reached the states in half a day

When I got to lovers lane, I was almost dead
But my soul was gone, here's what I said

Baby, baby, that man is no good
Oh, baby, baby, you should've understood

You can trust me as long as I'm free
So come back, pretty baby, where you used to be

'Cause I love you (3x)
