Welcome to the Jungle

I just heard "Welcome To The Jungle" driving into work this morning and I realized, that is one scary fuckin' song. The words, the delivery, the lead singer.

Take a gander at the words and tell me if it don't make your blood run cold. I think that having this as an introductory song blaring over speakers at the beginning of any event (school, bootcamp, SEAL training) would set the tone.

Welcome to the jungle
We've got fun 'n' games
We got everything you want
Honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey
We got your disease

[CHORUS:]

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
knees, knees
I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome to the jungle
We take it day by day
If you want it you're gonna bleed
But it's the price you pay
And you're a very sexy girl
That's very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights
But you won't get them for free
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
I, I wanna hear you scream

Welcome to the jungle
It gets worse here everyday
Ya learn ta live like an animal
In the jungle where we play
If you got a hunger for what you see
You'll take it eventually
You can have anything you want
But you better not take it from me

[CHORUS]

And when you're high you never
Ever want to come down, YEAH!

You know where you are
You're in the jungle baby
You're gonna die
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
knees, knees
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
knees, knees
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
It' gonna bring you down-HA!

Just.... damn.

    I've used this as a meditation for many a prayer service.

    Ya know, Axl looks really smart when he wears his glasses.

    I saw them at Eastern Illinois University before they were anybody. And I thought they sucked. I'm still not a fan...

    You are right, it is "nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh kneeeeeees." That's what I get from copying the lyrics from the 16th page of Google as to avoid the spyware.

    We play that song in the jail. Drunks love it, unless they are already hung over

    Dude, you GOT to play something like polka or opera.

    I'd be a masochist warden.

    It's a move to the big bad city song, isn't it?

    It's all about Axl moving from Indiana to LA and the drugged scene I fell into.

    Read Go Ask Alice and listen to Appetite For Destruction for a double dose of spine chilling young people moving to the city.

    Personally I love it!
