W-I-L-D


Lyrics from The Jungle Book 2
Music and lyrics by Lorraine Feather and Paul Grabowsky
Performed by John Goodman as Baloo

Baloo, Mowgli

When we start to move
Hey, honey, it ain't no joke
We got a savage groove
We didn't learn from human folk
'Scuse our incivility
We're W-I-I-I-L-D

When the music plays
All the people stomp their feet
But a stomping paw
Can lay down a better beat
Tell me we ain't naturally
W-I-I-I-L-D

It's a snap to bring out the beast in you
You're free like the bird, it's true
Or a frog or a hog or
Oh, man, whatever
From the maddest cat
To the sweetest little deer
Tonight's the night
We're gonna get our tails in gear
Show me your ferocity
Go W-I-I-I-L-D

We snort
We squeak
Up high
Or deep underground
We snarl
We shriek
We fly round and round and round
Oh, go you sweet thing that's inhuman, baby

The old mongoose gets good and loose
The ocelot gives it all he's got
The parakeet goes twiddle dee
The red macaque shouts hang on, jack
The tiny worm, the pachyderm
The spotted cat, the water rat
The great cuckoo, the bear Baloo are
W-I-L-D

Here's the thing
If we're broke we never squawk
We don't need to check no clock
To know what time it is
It's time to rock
When you dance like that
Hey, honey, it sure is hip
I wanna tip my hat
But I got no hat to tip
I don't need no hat
Ask me why and I won't lie
W-I-I-I-L-D

We grunt
We growl
Up high
Or deep underground
We hoot
We howl
We fly round and round and round

My, oh, me, it's plain to see
We're W-I-I-I-L-D
He, she, me uniquely
W-I-I-I-L-D
Every beastie running free
W-I-I-I-I-I-I-L-D!
