Yes or No

Ju Ju             W.Shorter/C.Foster

Through the jungle
On an elephant we ride
Treading carefully
We’re tightly side by side
Exploring mysteries that no one dared
Distant drum beats pervade the air
Chanting voices of old
Secret stories we’re told

Lions, tigers, bears
And slimy snakes that bite
Are the only creatures
Clearly out of sight
Eyes around and us they stare
Noises heard but  there’s no one there
Voodoo dissonant wails
Whispering leaves tell their tales

In a moment
All the trees begin to stir
And the biggest cats
They hungrily will purr
Yes the king has arrived it seems
A mane of power and a look that gleams
Someones fate will be lost
(At) simply anyones cost

In the jungle
In the jungle we must hide
For he’s opening his jaw
So very wide
Thoughts of food beckon in his ear
Takes me far, far away from here
Danger steals into night
Like birds we must take flight
