RUN THROUGH THE JUNGLE

Live 03 May 1981 version


Well I thought it was a nightmare
But it was the truth
People now don't go walking slow
The devil's on the loose

Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle

I thought I heard a rumble
And someone call my name
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries, "Take aim"

Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle

Now over on the mountain
???
Cried, "Let the people know my wisdom,
Fill this land with smoke"

Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle

??? now the land's on fire
Written in blood in the sky
Men pulling shotguns out of the truck
The city's burning tonight

Now me and Robert Williams
Out on Route Line 3
Last night they dragged him out of his house
And shot him in the street

Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle
Better run through this jungle
But don't look back ???

I thought it was a nightmare
But it was the truth
