Rockin' In The Congo

Rockin' In The Congo, Rockin' In The Congo
Listen to the Lingo, better start to swing,
So Rockin' In The Congo.

In the African jungle way down deep, all of the animals fast asleep.
My native boy who’s was having the jive, said I ’m gonna make the jungle come alive.
Beating on the drum in his native style, You can hear his rhythm up and down the Nile.
A lion woke up and he let out a roar, I think I’ve heard that beat before.
A monkey swung down from high on a lim, said I feel that rhythm deap within.
An antelope jumped from behind the trees, said, It sure sounds mighty fine to me.
An elephant showed his mighty snout, said what’s this racket all about
A Hyena laughed said nothing’s wrong, cause they Rockin' the Congo all night long.

Rockin' In The Congo, Rockin' In The Congo
Listen to the Lingo, better start to swing,
So Rockin' In The Congo.

Well an alligator crawled from his watery bed, turned to the hippo, and here’s what he said.
Said : jump that boy, it’s time to swing, can’t you hear that rhythm ring.
An Ostrich has his head in the ground, until he heard that rockin’ sound.
He started to sing, well, the go man go, and he woke up the Buffalo.
A zebra called to a snake doo doo, said this is the beat on me and you.
None of the animals have a clock, but everybody knew it was time to rock.
Across the plains and high on the hill, nothing in the jungle could keep still.
The native boy was going strong and they rocked the Congo all night long.

Rockin' In The Congo, Rockin' In The Congo
Listen to the Lingo, better start to swing,
So Rockin' In The Congo.

Rockin' In The Congo, baby all night long.
