Civilization


words and music by Carl Sigman and Bob Hilliard


Each morning, a missionary advertise with neon sign He tells the native population that civilization is fine And three educated savages holler from a bamboo tree That civilization is the thing for me to see


Bongo, bongo, bongo, I don't wanna leave the Congo, oh no no no no no Bingle, bangle, bungle, I'm so happy in the jungle, I refuse to go Don't want no bright lights, false teeth, doorbells, landlords, I make it clear That no matter how they coax him, I'll stay right here


I looked through a magazine the missionary's wife concealed I see how people who are civilized bang you with automobile At the movies they have got to pay many coconuts to see Uncivilized pictures that the newsreel takes of me


Bongo, bongo, bongo, he don't wanna leave the Congo, oh no no no no no Bingle, bangle, bungle, he's so happy in the jungle, he refuse to go Don't want no penthouse, bathtub, streetcars, taxis, noise in my ear So, no matter how they coax him, I'll stay right here


They hurry like savages to get aboard an iron train And though it's smokey and it's crowded, they're too civilized to complain When they've got two weeks vacation, they hurry to vacation ground They swim and they fish, but that's what I do all year round


Bongo, bongo, bongo, I don't wanna leave the Congo, oh no no no no no Bingle, bangle, bungle, I'm so happy in the jungle, I refuse to go Don't want no jailhouse, shotgun, fish-hooks, golf clubs, I got my spears So, no matter how they coax him, I'll stay right here


They have things like the atom bomb, so I think I'll stay where I "ahm" Civilization, I'll stay right here!
