Tribute to the Rhythm King

Safari calls
And I’m shaking the rust from my tush
Gonna pack my trunk
Full of jungle funk
And go deep trek into the bush
On the glow stick trail
To the mirror ball burial ground
Gonna twist and stomp
Through a disco swamp
Til the lost tribe circles around

And I’ll pay
Pay tribute to the rhythm king
When the Sherpas flee
Gonna bend the knee
And get down and kiss that ring
And we all go na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king

“Chooka lucka unga booga bucka,”
Read the indigenous runes
I’ve searched the globe for the perfect strobe
And arcane indigenous tunes
And when the hook goes,
“Chooka lucka unga booga bucka”
I know that I’m in the right place
And I start to sweat
Through my pith helmet
When the tribal chief’s kicking the bass

Pay!
Pay tribute to the rhythm king
Every word that’s sung
In the native tongue
Means, “Get up, shake that thing.”
And we all go na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Pay tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king

He's got a bone in his nose (bone in his nose!)
And a necklace of bones (necklace of bones!)
Another a bone in his hair (bone in his hair!)
And more there on his throne (more there on this throne!)

Pay!
Pay tribute to the rhythm king
With a blow gun dart
To my broken heart
I’ll be tied in boiling water
While they line up for the conga and swing!
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
Na, na, na, na, na
Tribute to the rhythm king
