Jungle Man is the first track and lead single from the band's second studio album, Freaky Styley. A music video was made using footage from different live performances of the song, which was directed by Lindy Goetz, who was the band's manager at that time. The track also appears on the compilation album What Hits!?, released in 1992. Even though it was written with guitarist Jack Sherman time before starting recording the album, Hillel Slovak plays guitar on the album version of the track due to Sherman being fired from the band in early 1985.


Deep inside the soul hole
Of Mother Earth
Father Time came
With a supersonic supersonic burst
His soul monkey sperm tribes
Racing to be first
Her ruby fruit jungle
Givin' bush baby bush baby birth
The baby was a boy
But I think what stunned her
Is that this bare breasted baby
Was a baby boy boy boy boy wonder
Crackin' from his thumb bone
Came felonious thunder
Fill the sky with hellfire
From way down down down under

I am a jungle man
I am a jungle man
I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I can

Erupting from the ground
In Hollywood he glowed
His jungle turned to concrete
His funk bone bone bone bone to stone
Like a full blown volcano
I must let it be known
That through this boy's vein
Atomic lava blood flows and flows
His soul shocking sounds
They make the mountains moan
This boy's become a man
It's time to take take take
Take the throne

I am a jungle man
I am a jungle man
I am a jungle man
I get all the bush I can
