Living in the bush
Roly-poly bushman

You can't ???
Watch a man in bush necktie
I'm so fast, I'm so sly
Ask me why I don't try

Living in the bush
Roly-poly bushman

Your mommy looks so sweet
To eat
Like sweet meats
Open wide
Throw the bones in my mouth
Ten feet high, six wide
Roll it to the bushman

Living in the bush
Living in the bush
Living in the bush
Living in the bush
