lyrics

I was born in the woods
I was raised pretty good
By a pack of hyenas
I was free in the soul
I was more animal than man

I was good on my own
I was almost fully grown
When the zookeepers seen us
Now i know you never knew
So i gotta tell you who i am

Way back, i was hunting with my teeth
Way back, with the jungle floor beneath
Way back, i was crawlin' on my paws
Way back, must've broke a lot of laws

I was trapped in a bag
I was sent to a lab
In the back of a college
I was shaved of my hair
Given clothes i could wear for free

I was told how to talk
How to stand when i walk
Make displays of my knowledge
But the fun's worn away
'Cuz they don't like to play like me

Take me back, to the sweat and the sun
Take me back, to the dirt and the dung
Take me back, to the tongues and the tails
Take me back, to the slime and the scales

I'm going back to my roots
Gonna chew on the fruits
I'm moving back to the jungle
I'm gonna grow out my hair
Learn to growl like a bear
I'm moving back to the jungle
I'm gonna roll in the dirt
Dig a hole 'til it hurts
I'm moving back to the jungle
I'm gonna swing from the vines
Show the world that it's mine
I'm moving back to the jungle
Where i'm gonna eat bugs

When you see me again
I'll be down in the den
With the tigers and lions
I will show you around
We will go up and down the trees

Oh the jungle and i
Will explain you the cycle
Of livin' and dyin'
Leave your house, take a right
'Cuz it's such a crazy sight to see

I'm going back, gonna crawl down the street
I'm going back, on my hands and my feet
I'm going back, i can't pretend anymore
I'm going back, i'll leave my clothes on the floor

There is so much to do
In the woods, you will use
All five of your senses
You will taste through your toes
See the world through your nose in 3d

There's a part of your brain
That just can’t contain
‘Cuz there's cracks in the fences
Won’t you start looking through
See the animal you can be

Come back, to your mother the earth
Come back, to the instinct of birth
Come back, leave your worries behind
Come back, to your reptile mind
Come back, to the call of the wild
Come back, like a prodigal child
Come back, 'cause it's not very far
Come back, to the creature you are

I am done with the rules
Wanna run with the wolves
I'm moving back to the jungle
I'm gonna howl at the moon
Use a stick for a spoon
I'm moving back to the jungle
I wanna bathe in the mud
Make a monkey be my bud
I'm moving back to the jungle
I'm gonna love, gonna fight
Stay up every single night
I'm moving back to the jungle
Where i'm gonna eat wood

I am leaving tonight
Wanna hunt, wanna bite
I'm moving back to the jungle
I wanna bark like a dog
Gonna sleep in a log
I'm moving back to the jungle
I'm gonna swim in the lake
Slither round with the snakes
I'm moving back to the jungle
I was born to be free
So you know where i will be
I'm moving back to the jungle
Where i'm gonna eat dirt
