Jingle Jangle Jungle

 


      I live in a jingle jangle jungle
      If you ain't got it you can't be
      Fightin' over crumbs
      Wait till payday comes
      Gettin' green ink thumbs
      From countin'
      While it's mountin'
      In this jingle jangle jungle I call home.

      You live in a jingle jangle jungle
      If you can't earn it you ain't free
      Where a life is spent
      Tryin' to meet the rent
      Payin' back the cent
      You borrow
      Some tomorrow
      In this jingle jangle jungle you call home.

      We live in a jingle jangle jungle
      You're only worth what you can buy
      So keep on workin' hard
      To keep your own backyard
      Teach your kids that God
      Ain't fiction
      Contradiction
      In this jingle jangle jungle you call home.

      I live in a jingle jangle jungle
      If it don't jingle it's gonna fold
      All the things you own
      Are only here on loan
      It's by bread alone
      You're livin'
      Call this livin'
      In this jingle jangle jungle we call home.

      I live in a jingle jangle jungle
      Where people die to make some green
      Turnin' men to boys
      Makin' new war toys
      Dancin' to the noise
      Of ticker
      Can't get much sicker
      In this jingle jangle jungle we call home.
