Im on safari, Im after zebras on the run
Im on safari, and Im not scared of anyone
So all you lions and you tigers and you silly chimpanzees
All your stalking squawking wont scare me

Im on safari, I hear the beat of jungle drums
Im on safari, I wonder where theyre coming from
Or are they telling me to look out for an elephant stampede,
Or are they saying, Buddy, youre not need.

When youre on safari, you are out to have some fun
When youre on safari, take your camera, not your gun
So, when you walk up to a gorilla who is swinging in the trees
Say, I want your picture, wont you please say cheese?
