1980s one-hit wonder by Baltimora, resurrected in the mid-1990s in a series of Cool Mint Listerine commercials animated by Pixar. Now only available on the soundtrack to Beverly Hills Ninja and any number of 80s dance party collections. Too bad; it's a fun dose of escapism for any mix tape.


        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh

Jungle life, I'm far away from nowhere
On my own like Tarzan Boy
Hide and seek, I play along while rushing 'cross the forest
Monkey business on a sunny afternoon
Jungle life, I'm living in the open
Native beat that carries on
Burning bright, a fire that blows the signal to the sky
I sit and wonder, does the message get to you

        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh

    Night to night, gimme the other, gimme the other
    Chance tonight, gimme the other, gimme the other
    Night to night, gimme the other, gimme the other world

        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh

Jungle life, you're far away from nothing
It's alright, you won't miss home
Take a chance, leave everything behind you
Come and join me, won't be sorry, it's easy to survive
Jungle life, we're living in the open
All alone like Tarzan Boy
Hide and seek, we play along while rushing 'cross the forest
Monkey business on a sunny afternoon

    Night to night, gimme the other, gimme the other
    Chance tonight, oh yeah
    Night to night, gimme the other, gimme the other
    Night to night, you won't play
    Night to night, gimme the other, gimme the other
    Chance tonight, oh yeah
    Night to night, night to night
    Gimme the other, gimme the other world

        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
        O-o-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-o-oh
