Lyrics

George, George, George of the Jungle
Strong as he can be
(Yodeling)
Watch out for that tree!
(Ooo!)

George, George, George of the Jungle
Lives a life that's free
(Yodeling)
Watch out for that tree!

When he gets in a scrape
He makes his escape
With the help from his friend
An ape named "Ape"

Then away he'll schlep
On his Elephant Shep
While Bella and Ursula
Stay in step

With George, George, George of the Jungle
Friend to you and me
(Yodeling)
Watch out for that tree
WATCH OUT FOR THAT...!
(Yodeling... "ooo!")
TREE!

George, George, George of the Jungle
Friend to you and me!

(various squawks)
George, George, George of the Jungle
Strong as he can be
(yell)
Watch out for that tree!

George, George, George of the Jungle
Lives a life that's free
(yell)
Watch out for that tree!

When he gets in a scrape
He makes his escape
With the help from his friend
An ape named "Ape"

And his elephant, Shep
Can fetch a log
He's man's best friend
He's George's dog!

He's George, George, George of the Jungle
Strong as he can be
(yell)
Watch out for that tree!

George, George, George of the Jungle
Friend to you and me
(yell)
Watch out for that tree!

Hear him holler
Swing and sing
All the animals come
To the jungle king
So grab a vine
And swing in time
If you smack a tree
Just pay no mind
Like...

George, George, George of the Jungle(x13)
swing from tree to tree
(yell)
Watch out for that tree!

George, George, George of the Jungle
Lives a life that's free.
(yell)
Watch out for that tree!

Lost in the wild was a baby with a smile
Named George who stayed for quite a while
And George grew up in the trees above
When Ursula found him, they found love
She took him to the city, took him straight downtown
But the concentrate bliss brought poor George down
So it's back to the jungle for a wedding in the green
For the king and queen of the animal scene

George, George, George of the Jungle
Strong as he can be
(yell)
Watch out for that...
Bang, ooh, tree!

George, George, George of the Jungle
WATCH OUT FOR THAT TREE!
