Love In The Jungle

Love is a mysterious thing
Circumstances determines who you love
Many a man has fallen victim of its sting
Its slaps and makes a man rove.

Love is pain and gain
My heart deeply clings to her
Worried my heart is, but she worth the pain
I hear jungle drums telegraphing afar.

Then I hear a wailing piano calling
Her voice rises and falls in melody
My heart whispers to my toes to keep walking
Then the piano became rowdy.

Her melodious voice arrest my soul
The mystic rhythm of her voice heals my soul.
