Music Monday (80s Edition) Welcome to the Jungle – Guns N’ Roses

mm80s

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is pick a favorite song or video and share it on Mondays.

This (obviously) isn’t the official graphic for the Music Monday meme—I decided to make one of my own, with colors that complement the ones I use on TGB. The original graphic can be found on Drew’s blog.

Today I’m sharing another old favorite… Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N’ Roses. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Welcome to the jungle we’ve got fun and 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

Jungle, welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your shun n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n knees, knees
Uh, I, I want to 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 to pay
And you’re a very sexy girl, very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights but you won’t get there for free
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
Ooh, I want to hear you scream

Welcome to the jungle, it gets worse here every day
You learn to live like an animal in the jungle where we play
If you hunger for what you see you’ll take it eventually
You can have everything you want but you better not take it from me

In the jungle, welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knnn knne knees, knees
I’m gonna watch you bleed

And when you’re high you never ever want to come down
So down, so down, so down, yeah

You know where you are?
You’re down in the jungle baby
you’re gonna die

In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your shun n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n 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 shun n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n knees, knees
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to you
Its gonna bring you down, ha!
