What happens?)I see how people who are civilized bang you with automobiles(You know you can get hurt that way Daniel?)At the movies they have got to pay many coconuts to see(What do they see Danny?)Uncivilized pictures that the newsreel takes of meSo bongo, bongo, bongo he don't want to leave the Congo, oh no no no no noBingle, bangle, bungle he's so happy in the jungle, he refuse to goDon't want no penthouse, bathtub, streetcars, taxis, noise in my ear(So no matter how they coax him), I'll stay right hereThey hurry like savages to get aboard an iron train(The Tring-galim-bohoo-laham-bah-le) ExpressAnd though it's smokey and it's crowded they're too civilized to complain(Ah-lo-ke-do-ho-saw-he-ma-he-na)When they've got two weeks vacation they hurry to vacation grounds(What do they do Danny?)They swim and they fish, but that's what I do all year roundSo bongo, bongo, bongo I don't want to leave the Congo, oh no no no no noBingle, bangle, bungle I'm so happy in the jungle, I refuse to goDon't want no jailhouse, shotguns, fish hooks, golf clubs, I got my spears(So no matter how they coax him), I'll stay right hereThey have things like the atom bombSo I think I'll stay where I ahmCivilization, I'll stay right here

Pfighting Polish: As long as we're all sharing, something quite entertaining from some of the most talented performing acts ever to live: You Don't Have To Know The Language with the sisters, Bing & Bob from The Road to Rio.The ladies might not have been blessed with the greatest looks, but damn could they sing (and could move a little, too).
