A very funny song, I laughed a lot when a friend passed this on to me, so I want to share it with you guys. There's quite a lot of mixture of nationalities here. Toy-Box was a Danish pop group, consisting of vocalists Anila Mirza and Amir El-Falaki. Anila was born October 8, 1974 in Hillerød, Denmark to a half-Pakistani, half-Persian mother, and an Indian father. Amir was born August 12, 1973 in Copenhagen, Denmark to Moroccan parents. They sing in English and play the role of Tarzan, from Africa, and Jane, from the UK, so you can count. How many nationalities are represented on this video?

Anyway, I miss a little bit of "ungawa" in the lyrics ;-)

Deep in the jungle in the land of adventure lives Tarzan

I am Jane and I love to ride an elephant

My name is Tarzan I am jungle man
The tree tops swinger from jungle land
Come baby come I will take you for a swing
Let's go honey I'm tinkling

Tarzan is handsome Tarzan is strong
He's really cute and his hair is long
Tarzan is handsome Tarzan is strong
So listen to the jungle song

I am Tarzan from jungle you can be my friend
I am Jane and I love to ride an elephant

When you touch me I feel funny
I feel it too when you're touching me
Come to my tree house to my party
Yes I'll go if you carry me

Tarzan is handsome full of surprise
He's really cute and his hair is nice
Tarzan is handsome Tarzan is strong
So listen to the jungle song

I am Tarzan from jungle you can be my friend
I am Jane and I love to ride an elephant

Yeah
Go cheetah get banana
Hey monkey get funky

Swing along tarzan
Go cheetah get banana
Hey monkey get funky

When I am dancing I feel funky
Why do you keep ignoring me
Tarzan is here, come kiss me baby
Coochie coochie kiss me tenderly

Tarzan is handsome Tarzan is strong (me Tarzan)
He's really cute and his hair is long (long hair)
Tarzan is handsome Tarzan is strong
So listen to the jungle song

I am Tarzan from jungle you can be my friend
I am Jane and I love to ride an elephant

You go
Go cheetah get banana
Hey monkey get funky

I am jane and I love to ride an elephant

And so they got funky but will Tarzan have Jane
Stay tuned

I LOVE TO RIDE AN ELEPHANT= Sure you do, and probably other big things too, by the look of it.

I AM JUNGLE MAN= This is Tarzan English (the variety of English spoken in Tarzanland) = I am the man from the jungle.

THE TREE TOPS SWINGER= The man that swings from tree top to tree top.

I WILL TAKE YOU FOR A SWING= Is there some sexual innuendo here or is it my overheated mind?

HONEY= Darling, baby.

TINKELING= To tinkle is the word children and some women use when they have a pee (look, the baby's tinkling, how nice!). But I suppose Jane doesn't mean that (hey Tarzan, look, I'm having a piss). Another meaning for "tinkle" is a clicking metallic sound (like when you shake little bells). If this girl is tinkling it means that she's so excited that she's all shaking and trembling with emotion, so all her rings, necklaces, bracelets, piercings and other jewels are clicking and making this clinking sound.

CUTE= Very nice and lovable.

I FEEL FUNNY= I feel strange.

TARZAN IS... FULL OF SURPRISE= Yeah, we probably know what surprise he's hiding. This girl really loves elephants, doesn't she?

CHEETAH= For some strange reason (maybe part of the peculiarities of the Tarzan English dialect) Cheetah is not a cheetah, but a chimpanzee. Well, I know a lady called Daisy and she's not a flower, and I know a girl called Virginia and... well, you know.

HEY MONKEY, GET FUNKY= Funky means having a strong, offensive, unwashed odour. But I don't think Tarzan wants Cheetah to stink (or maybe he does?). Here it refers to funky music, so to get funky is to party to the funky music.

SWING ALONG TARZAN= Swing with Tarzan. Easy, Tarzan grabs you tightly, he then grabs a long rope that is supposed to be just a plant (yeah, right) and then you both jump off from the tree top and swing till the next tree top. Physics laws say you should either fall down and crash onto the jungle ground or crash against the nearest tree, but movie laws say that you will 100% sure land safely and nicely on top of some distant tree, ready to swing again if you need.

COOCHIE COOCHIE= A sweet loving way of calling your sweetheart (boyfriend). If a man uses this word you can bet he's gay (and not a normal gay either). If a woman uses this word you should go and get yourself another woman before it's too late. The only person who can use this word naturally without giving you an urge to vomit is Betty Rubble, Barney's wife in the cartoon series "The Flintstones", and that's only because she died 1 million years ago, in the Stone Age.

STAY TUNED= Keep in contact with the news or with the next episode to find out what will happen next.

The meaning of the song is very simple. Tarzan and Jane live in the jungle, with Cheetah and other firends, and they like having fun. But Janes wants to have more fun, if you know what I mean, and Tarzan is a bit thick to understand the situation, but he more or less gets the idea. More or less.
