Looking out from my jungle apartment,
Over my wildlife kingdom,
I could really use some excitement,
Wish a young lady would swing in.

I've cleaned up the place with some palm leaves,
No elephant dung in the yard,
And cleaning up after Simba,
Is becoming a little too hard.

I cut down twenty large trees,
Constructed a 40 by 40 foot box,
Can't house train my elephant,
Nor my lion named socks.

That's why I need a soul mate,
House cleaning's becoming a chore,
I'd shower her with sweet fruit and dates,
Who could ask for anything more?

I'd give her a lovely new wardrobe,
Fig leaves in all shades of color,
Bug eaten leaves for negligees,
And a cave in the back for her mother.

Welcome man of many animals and less words.
Well I think..this ain't right and true
funny it is and I like to read more form you
Looks as thou you have some volunteering Jane's (just kidding, don't sent Simba after me   )
Well done and yes funny...why not lol

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Tarzzan, that was so good and funny, great introduction for you.

"Bug eaten leaves for negligees,
And a cave in the back for her mother"

These two lines almost made me roll of my chair. How come mother get nice cave and you get box?

Tarzzan baby swing over here
I've an urge to clean your place
But leave my mother out of this
her drinking is such a disgrace!

Why only last week she was swingin'
with George of the Jungle, y'know!
When I woke up the next day
She was married to a man named Toe!

Ooooooooooohh.... Tarzzan....
A soulmate, you say???... Sounds intriguing...
Mom and I will swing right over...
But do you really think I need a new wardrobe?
These ole Rags are just sooooooooo comfy...

Me thinks I would need a bit of vine swinging as excersize before I could fit into a fig leaf, specially one with holes! hehe

Where there is love,

Where there is peace,
            there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
        there is no need.
