It's A Jungle Out There

by Harry Nilsson

One day Tarzan said to Jane
While they were walking through the garden
One thing I must explain - before we go much farther
I know you'd like a bright new dress
With a bright new yellow linin'
But every time you want one darlin'
I got to fight a lion.
 
And it's a jungle out there
And it's a jungle out there
There ain't no way around it
At least I've never found it.
It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
 
Now way back in the city
Where the city people smile
Whenever they want a new pair of shoes
They don't kill a crocodile
And when the nighttime falls around them
They stay in their hotels
But out here darlin'
When the nighttime comes
There's nothing to do but yell
'Cause it's a jungle out there
You better say a prayer
Even if they eat you
And eventually they will.
It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
 
One day Tarzan said to Jane
I want to talk to you about the boy
He's acting very strange lately
He thinks a tools a toy
Why only yesterday
While I was out there fixin' up the vine
He said "dad I'm gonna take a swing"
But he grabbed a hold of my vine - ow!
It's a jungle out there
Hey you better beware
There ain't no way around it
At least I've never found it.
It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
 
Now the moral of the story is
If you end up out there too.
Just think of all them snakes
You might have snaken up on you,
But on the other hand my darlin'
You don't have to care 'cause no matter how far
No matter how long
No matter how cold or fair
High or low
Up or down
It's still a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
There ain't no way around it
At least I've never found it.
It's a jungle out there
