Civilization
Frank Sinatra

Each morning the missionary advertises on the neon sign,
It tells the native population that civilization is fine.
And pre-educated savages holler from the bamboo tree
That civilization is not for me to see.

Chorus:
Oh bongo bongo bongo, I don't wanna leave the
Congo oh no, no, no, no, no,
Bingle bangle bongle, I don't wanna leave jungle,
I refuse to go.
I don't want landlords, junkyard, cocktails, caviar,
I'll make it clear that no matter how they coax me,
I'll stay right here.

I looked through a magazine a missionary's wife concealed.
I see how people who are civilized bang you with automobile.
When they have two weeks' vacation, they hurry to vacation grounds,
They swim and they fish, but that's what I do all year round.

Chorus:
Oh bongo bongo bongo, I don't wanna leave the
Congo oh no, no, no, no, no,
Bingle bangle bongle, I don't wanna leave jungle,
I refuse to go.
I don't want landlords, junkyard, cocktails, caviar,
I'll make it clear that no matter how they coax me,
I'll stay right here.

They have things like the atom bomb,
So I think I'll stay here where I am,
Civilization, I'll stay here.
