The Wamboo
Del Shannon
Well way down deep in the Belgian Congo (hey Congo)
Well there's a dance they call the wamboo (hey wamboo)
And as they dance they sing this song
(Woom-boo wam-boo way wamboo)
With voodoo drums beating all night long
(Woom-boo wam-boo way wamboo)
Woom-boo wam-boo way, woom-boo wam-boo way
Woom-boo wam-boo way-o!

Well even Tarzan can do this dance (Hey Tarzan)
So grab Jany and give it a chance (Hey Jany)
And as you dance just sing along
(Woom-boo wam-boo way, wamboo)
You can sing it out loud and Mary's gone
(Woom-boo wam-boo way, wamboo)
Woom-boo wam-boo way, woom-boo wam-boo way
Woom-boo wam-boo way-o!

Woom-boo wam-boo way...(woom-boo wam-boo way...[x 3] )
Yeah, Wamboo! (aaaah)

Just a-call on me if you need a little help (no help wanted)
Can you handle this dance all by yourself (no help wanted)
Then just stand still and go like this
(Woom-boo wam-boo way, wamboo)
Now shake it up baby and a-wiggle those hips
(Woom-boo wam-boo way, wamboo)
Woom-boo wam-boo way, woom-boo wam-boo way,
Woom-boo wam-boo way-o!
