Nelson, Ricky - Carl Of The Jungle Lyrics




A man went to Africa to meet with the primitive
The man was very brave and not afraid
Didn't come there to enslave anyone

And it scared him, and though it sacred him
His intuition told him he'd better go
Back to Vienna
(Go back, go back)
(Go back, go back)

Now the man was eager to find out all about the primitive mind
He was very sensitive, was very patient
Realized that he was looking into a mirror at himself

And it scared him, and though it sacred him
His intuition told him he'd better go
Back to Vienna
(Go back, go back)
(Go back, go back)

Now he asked the native wise men, what do your dreams tell you now
They said "Since the white man came we're no longer able to dream
The white man knows it all"

And that scared him, and though it sacred him
He began havin' dreams himself that told him he'd better go
Back to Vienna
(Go back, go back)
(Go back, go back)
Now he thought about the primitive mind and he read about the ancient times
But when he slipped back a few thousand years and his heart locked up
He realized it was powerful stuff

And it scared him, you know it sacred him
His intuition told him he'd better go
Back to Vienna
(Go back, go back)
(Go back, go back)
Back to the white man
(Go back, go back)
(Go back, go back)
Back to Vienna
(Go back, go back)
(Go back, go back)
Up North
(Go back, go back)
(Go back, go back)

    The first minutes of this video are amazing, great to see Rick and James in concert. Great song so different form what Rick usually sung. This song and the rest of the album were not released while Rick was alive, the album was Back to Vienna and was recorded on 1978 or 79.

    @rockxxz And I will post some more of the songs you requested soon.

    @JBmiddleOFnoWHERE I do have quite a bit of Rick footage. That is a very brief clip from McCloud. I don't know what happened when ripping that dvd, the footage came out rather compressed. Oh well...

    @hsmgeek4ever That's from the Petrocelli episode.
