Theme song lyrics


George, George, George of the Jungle,
Strong as he can be.
(Tarzan yell) Watch out for that tree!

George, George, George of the Jungle
Lives a life that's free.
(Tarzan yell) Watch out for that tree!

When he gets in a scrape,
He makes his escape
With the help of his friend,
An ape named Ape.
Then away he'll schlep on his elephant Shep
While Fella and Ursula stay in step...

With George, George, George of the Jungle
Friend to you and me.
(Tarzan yell) Watch out for that tree!
Watch out for that... (Tarzan yell ... "Oooh!") tree!

George, George, George of the Jungle,
Friend to you and me!
