If the onset of summer brings to mind wild days and late nights with your kids, you may be in the jungle. Refresh the tune in your mind by watching Guns ‘N Roses here and then sign along - you’re sure to see yourself and your kids in this ode to summer!

Welcome to the jungle we got fun and games

I saw you toss your alarm clock, honey, I think I’ll do the same

I am the person that can find whatever you may need

But please try looking for it on your own before you holler for me

In the jungle, welcome to the jungle

Summer swelters in Charlotte without a ba-ba-ba-ba bree - breeze

I wanna watch you read [where is that list?]

Welcome to the jungle we take it day by day

If you want to go to the pool again you better find another way

And you're a very busy boy, at Freedom Park or Hubbie Dees

You’d love to live at Carowinds but do you get that it’s not free?

In the jungle, welcome to the jungle

Has anyone seen my 50+ sunscreen?

Summer makes me want to scream!

Welcome to the jungle it gets worse here everyday

You learn to survive the humidity with a movie at Phillips Place

If you got a hunger I think you can make your own grilled cheese

Sure, you can build that fort outside just please don’t kill the tree

In the jungle, welcome to the jungle

Is it too much to ask for a little ba-ba-ba-ba bree- breeze?

I'm gonna watch you read [honey, SportsCenter ticker doesn’t count]

And when you're high on the zip-line you never want to come down

So down, so down, so down, yeah

You know where you are?

You're at the Whitewater Center, you gonna cliiiimb!

In the jungle welcome to the jungle

I’m dyin’ for an icy diet coke and a ba-ba-ba-ba bree - breeze

In the jungle welcome to the jungle

My house smells like coconuts and chlorine

Jungle welcome to the jungle

Duke Energy will count its dough I’ll get my fa-fa-fa-fa free- freeze

Down in the jungle welcome to the jungle

Watch it bring you inside to survive

Watch me turn that thermostat down, ha!!

[what do you mean, it’s too cold to read??]
