Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin'my first bongo
Every monkey'd like to be
In my place instead of me
'cause I'm the king of bongo, baby,
I'm the king of bongo bong.
I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Lookin' for a bigger crown
So I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie
Cause people like disco
