Jo Jo Gunne

It was in ancient history four thousand B C

Back up in the jungle in a coconut tree

Hanging on a branch up under the sun

Was a meddlesome monkey named Jo Jo Gunne

Old Leo the lion came down from the mountain

To get a drink of water from the jungle fountain

Jo Jo the monkey started tellin' him jive

About the elephant who was gonna skin him alive

Leo tried to reach and grab Jo Jo's tail

Got mad and went roarin' through the jungle trail

He ran upon an elephant beneath a tree

And said "Put up your dukes you gotta tussle with me"

An ol' eagle from Asia made a non stop flight

Tryin' to make it in time just to see them fight

A crocodile phoned and reversed the charge

Comin' all the way from India on a local barge

Ol' gorilla heard 'em talking in the lion's den

But Jo Jo bet him three bucks the elephant wins

Jo Jo yelled at Leo "Go on knock him down

He don't outweigh you but a thousand pounds"

Leo left wailin' with a left upper cut

The elephant took his snoot and grabbed a coconut

Leo fired a beautiful short back cross

That's when the coconut landed up against his jaw

Leo grew tired but he wouldn't give in

The elephant all loose beat his jawbone in

The buzzard said they fought furious all day

He couldn't understand how Leo got away

Jo Jo runnin' everywhere spreadin' the news

To the zebras and the leopards and the kangaroos

A hoot owl reported everything he saw

Had his eyes wide open they called it a draw

Leo limpin' back with his jawbone bruised

Jo Jo in the trees started singin' the blues

Laughin' meddlin' jumpin' up and down

'Til his foot missed a limb and he fell to the ground

Just like a bolt of thunder and a streak of heat

Leo covered Jo Jo with all four feet

Jo Jo was screamin' with tears in his eyes

Said " Please Mr Leo I apologize"

Said "If you let my feet upon solid ground

I'll fight you close range fifteen rounds"

Leo got back to the square of the fight

Jo Jo took a leap and jumped out of sight
