CHICKEN IN THE JUNGLE (Lyrics) by 1st OF APRIL

It was one of those nights
at the downtown show
And the Chicken In The Jungle
didn't know where to go

Ran away from the Colonel
Started Looking for some fun
Gotta find some leisure pleasure
There's a Chicken On The Run

{BRIDGE}
Because it's Dangerous! 
It's Dangerous
In The Jungle!

Because it's Dangerous! 
It's Dangerous
In The Jungle!

[CHORUS] 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
A Chicken In The Jungle

It was one of those nights
at the downtown show
And the movies gettin' groovy!
but the chicks don't know

The midnight Tarzan
in his limousine
Searchin' like the Colonel
for the Chicken of his dreams

{BRIDGE}
Because it's Dangerous! 
It's Dangerous
In The Jungle!
Because it's Dangerous! 
It's Dangerous (All so Dangerous)
In The Jungle!  🦁

[CHORUS] 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
A Chicken In The Jungle

There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
There's A Chicken In The Jungle 🐀
A Chicken In The Jungle

[CHORUS] 🐀 x3

"There's A Chicken
In The?  In The?
JUNGLE!!!"

MIQUEL BROWN - 'So Many Men, So Little Time' (12'' Maxi) 1983 record shack Hi-NRG Eurodisco Eurobeat Italo Disco Electro Synth Pop WAV HQ "OUT OF PRINT" 12'' Dance Classic 80s

 
"An early 1983 HIGH-ENERGY ⚡ Disco Single, produced with 'extra care', with a hope πŸ™ of selling 2000 vinyl's (to cover costs, and make a profit) - but went on to sell over 2 Million+ around the world!"  ⚡πŸ†πŸŒŽ⚡

Miquel Brown - Born in Montreal, February 8, 1949. Her name is pronounced Michael, fuelling an urban legend about her gender.
Raised in Vancouver, Canada, and later Washington D.C. where she became a teenage mum of twins at the age of just 14, one of the twins Sinitta becoming a future pop star herself in the 80s. Miquel moved to London in 1973, mostly being into theatre. She was brought to prominence in music when she recorded her first album "Symphony Of Love" with producer Alan Hawkshaw in 1978. She resurged in 1983 with "So Many Men, So Little Time" (#1 in France and Mexico), produced by Ian Levine, this was followed by other hits like "He's A Saint, He's A Sinner" and "Close To Perfection" (1985). She was a short-time member of The Three Degrees in 1985, substituting Helen Scott who was pregnant at the time.

Brown continued to release a few singles in the 90s, the last one being a cover of Pet Shop Boys' "It's A Sin", 1997, but has primarily focused on acting.

SONG LYRICS : S0 MANY MEN, SO LITTLE TIME (by MIQUEL BROWN)  🎢

[Men Shouting Out]:  [5; 10; 20; 40; 50; 60; 70; 80; 85; 90; 95; BOOM!]

It's morning, I open my eyes
And everything's still the same
I turn to the guy who stayed last night
And ask him, "What's your name?"

This seems to happen more and more
I love those men one and all
Each new one I meet makes my heart beat fast
When I see them so strong and tall

[CHORUS]
So many men, so little time
How can I lose?
So many men, so little time
How can I choose?

They tell me I'm up to no good
I should just settle down
But I don't wanna stay with just one man
I wanna sample what's around

Feels like Heaven every night
Being here with someone new
A physical thrill, a beautiful smile
And wonderful muscles too

[CHORUS]
So many men, so little time
How can I lose?
So many men, so little time
How can I choose?

[INSTRUMENTAL MID SECTION DRAMATIC BREAKDOWN]

[Men Shouting Out]:  [5; 10; 15; 20; 25; 30; 35; 40; 45; 50; 55; 60; 65; 70; 75; 80; 85; 90; 95; BOOM!]

So really, who cares about love?
Who wants their freedom taken away?
For fifty-two weeks of every year
There's a new man every day

It's too hard a choice to make up my mind
So many men can turn on my light
Don't want true love, don't want friends
Just give me the bodies tonight

[CHORUS]
So many men, so little time
How can I lose?
So many men, so little time
How can I choose?

[Nursery Rhyme verse]
"eenie meenie miney mo
catch the right one, by the toe
No I don't just want just one!
the more i have the more the fun!"

So really, who cares about love?
Who wants their freedom taken away?
For fifty-two weeks of every year
There's a new man every day

It's too wide a choice to make up my mind
So many men turn on my light
Don't want true love sir, don't want brains
Just give me their bodies tonight

So many men, so little time
How can I lose?
So many men, so little time
How can I choose?

[SCREAM]

[REPEAT CHORUS x2]
