"Meet Me in the Jungles, Louie" (karaoke)

"Meet Me in the Jungles, Louie" (sheet music)


Louie was out of a job; Louie was dead on the hog;
He looked all around, but no job could be found;
So, he had to go home and sit down;
A note on the table he spied; he read it just once, and he cried;
It read, "Louie, dear, get to hell out of here
For your board bill is now over due."

Meet me in the jungles, Louie; meet me over there;
Don't tell me the slaves are eating anywhere else but there;
We will each one be a booster to catch a big, fat rooster;
So, meet me in the jungles, Louie; meet me over there.

Louie went out of his shack; he swore he would never come back;
He said, "I will wait and take the first freight:
My friends in the jungles to see;
For me, there is waiting out there of a Mulligan stew a great share;
So, away I will go and be a hobo
For the song in the jungles I hear."

Meet me in the jungles, Louie; meet me over there;
Don't tell me the slaves are eating anywhere else but there;
We will each one be a booster to catch the scissor-bill's rooster;
So, meet me in the jungles, Louie; meet me over there.
