about

I wrote this post-apocalyptic song down in Costa Rica, during a very bad drought - which is becoming a regular thing.

lyrics

King of the Jungle

All the river beds are dry
No time to stop and wonder why
Circle of vultures is getting lower in the sky
Well the drought it never passed, first went the flowers and then the grass
Then the leaves on the trees ‘til there was nothing left eat

Gone are the days when all the fat antelope would graze
And I would roar with joy, ‘cause I was the King of the Jungle
What can you do but quench your thirst on the morning dew?
And hope one day you’ll come roaring back as the King of the Jungle

We’re all bound here to this earth, gravity hugs us to her girth
Meanwhile in the village, gone is the laughter and the mirth
The ones who walked upon two feet always took more than they could eat
Their brains got too big – they thought they knew what they were doing

Gone are the days when all the fat antelope would graze
And I would roar with joy, ‘cause I was the King of the Jungle
What can you do but quench your thirst on the morning dew?
And hope one day you’ll come roaring back as the King of the Jungle


Now I stand here on this hill, the world around is deathly still
And I lay me down one last time as the King of the Jungle
And I lay me down one last time as the King of the Jungle
Long live the King of the Jungle
