Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Jungle life
I'm far away from nowhere
On my own like Tarzan Boy

Hide and seek
I play along while rushing cross the forest
Monkey business on a sunny afternoon

Jungle life
I'm living in the open
Native beat that carries on

Burning bright
A fire that blows the signal to the sky
I sit and wonder does the message get to you

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Night to night
Gimme the other, gimme the other
Chance tonight
Gimme the other, gimme the other
Night to night
Gimme the other, gimme the other world

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Jungle life
You're far away from nothing
It's all right
You won't miss home

Take a chance
Leave everything behind you
Come and join me
You won't be sorry
It's easy to survive

Jungle life
We're living in the open
All alone like Tarzan's boy

Hide and seek
We'll play along while rushing 'cross the
Forest
Monkey business on a sunny afternoon

Night to night
Gimme the other, gimme the other
Chance tonight, Oh Yeah
Night to night
Gimme the other, gimme the other
Night to night
You won't play

Night to night
Gimme the other, gimme the other
Chance tonight, Oh Yeah
Night to night
Night to night
Gimme the other, gimme the other

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

    "tarzan boy" is about the nicaraguan drug conflict that the cia and oliver north were involved in the 80s. It remains one of the 80's most politically frought and heavy pop culture songs, with lyrics that deeply affected an entire generation.

    Sad, his death. Brings up the painful recognition of mortality. Tarzan Boy was iconic of 80s pop. Happy for him he could return to his beloved homeland & go out with dignity, courage & being honoured.

    They are playing dirty little sex games in the forest, he couldn't get it up the first time so he's asking for another chance. A typical love song.

    It's a love song. He's inviting her to take a chance on being with him, like it's an adventure far from the familiar, "the other chance. " he's telling her that she can be free with him from all the constraints of her familiar life. The forest in the song symbolizes the new and unknown, the wildness that allows for freedom. Love is an adventure.

    Drop character, do things with no pride nor ego. Be fluid. You`ll feel like tarzan: swinging freely through the jungle that is life
