Junglebook2 108

"The Jungle Rhythm" is a song featured in the film The Jungle Book 2. The song is written by Lorraine Feather and Paul Grabowsky and performed by Mowgli (Haley Joel Osment) who is attempting to convince Shanti (Mae Whitman) and the children of the Man Village the jungle where he was raised is not as bad as the adults say.


That morning sun peeks over the mountains
And all the rhinos rub their eyes
When they hear (hear what?)
Hear the jungle rhythm
Those birds are tap-tap-tappin' the tree trunks
The busy bee hums as he flies
Loud and clear
To the jungle rhythm
Now you can hightail it out of the jungle
But it never leaves your heart
First you feel that beat start
bubbling under
Then you hear the tom-toms
Loud as thunder
(it's moving me!)
Sounds a lot like being free
When you feel
Feel the jungle rhythm
Feel the jungle rhythm

(come on, Shanti!)

Can't do without rhythm
And when it fills the air
Animals everywhere
Join in the dance
You'll dance along with 'em
Feeling it steal your soul
We'll stomp our paws!
Flap our wings!
Maybe do one or two crazy things
Caw Caw!
(Yeah that's it!)
Ooh-ooh-ah-ahh, ooh-ooh-ah-ah!
Eep! Eep! Eep!
Caw! Caw!
Eep! Eep! Eep!
Chika Chika boom!
Eep! Eep! Eep!
[Rhythmic Animal Chants]
Boom-a-chaka, boom-a-chaka,
Boom-a-chaka, boom-a-chaka, boom!
Check out those chat-chat-chattering monkeys
Swinging through the banyan trees
Two by two (two by two)
To the jungle rhythm
Sounds like a wolf pack
Way in the distance
Singing pretty harmonies
Woo-woo-woo (woo-woo-woo)
To the jungle rhythm

Yeah! That's it!

Now you can hightail it out of the jungle
But it never leaves your heart
First you feel that beat start
Bubbling under
Then you hear the tom toms
Loud as thunder

(it's moving me!)

Sounds a lot like being free
When I feel (When I feel)
(When I feel) (When I feel)
Feel the jungle rhythm (x5)


Australian group Ten Tenors sing this for the German release of the movie.
