Radio 56, side A, track 5: “Welcome To The Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses, #12 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

GNR - Welcome To The JungleOh, Guns N’ Roses, look, guys, I’m not gonna lie to you.  I was at a party, maybe ate a little too much potato salad and drank a little too much beer.  So I’m not in any kind of shape to write anything coherent about this song.  Frankly, listening to that Axl Rose screech is maybe not the best idea for anyone in my current frame of mind.  So let’s just all agree that this song is amazing, totally deserves to be on this countdown, Peter Cetera, Peter Cetera.  But if anyone understands needing to take a day off because you maybe overdid it the night before, I think it’s you guys.  So I apologize that I don’t have more to say about this awesome song, but I need a room with no light and definitely no Axl Rose.

“Welcome To The Jungle”

<awesome GN’R intro>

Wooooooooooaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Welcome to the jungle
We 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, in the jungle
Welcome to the jungle, watch it bring ya to your

Sha-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-knees, knees

Wha
I
I wanna 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 you pay, and you’re a very sexy girl
Very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights, but you won’t get them for free, in the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my
My
My
My serpen-tine

Wha
I
I wanna hear you scream

Uh
Uh
Uh

Uh
Uh
Uh
Uh
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 got a hunger for what ya see
You’ll take it eventually
You can have anything you want, but ya better not take it from me in the jungle
Welcome to the jungle, watch it bring ya to your

Sha-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-knees, knees

Wha

I’m gonna watch you bleed

When you’re high you never
Ever wanna come down

So down

So down

So down
Yeah, hey, hey, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey

<awesome GN’R jam>

You know where you are?

You’re in the jungle, baby
You’re gonna diiiiiiiiiieyeeeeeah, in the jungle
Welcome to the jungle, watch it bring ya to your

Sha-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-knees, knees, in the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my
Oh my
My
My serpentine

Jungle
Welcome to the jungle, watch it bring ya to your

Sha-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-knees, knees, down in the jungle
Welcome to the jungle, watch it bring ya to your

It’s gonna bring you
Down

Huh!
