The branch is meant to represent compassion...and that's what this song is about.


Child of the Jungle - Lyrics
Words and music by Angie Nussey

She carries water in a bag on the train.
Scattered eyes ‘cuz you know she’s insane.
Tries to speak but her language remains
and she mumbles…she mumbles.

I turn my head and she looks in my eyes.
I look back and to my surprise.
I see I child who once carried a smile
and I see her I see her.

Oh, she was beautiful, beautiful…a child of the jungle
Oh, she was beautiful, beautiful…a child of the jungle

She wears a jacket once worn by a man
long sleeves over chapped little hands.
I try to soothe her but she misunderstands
and I scare her, I scare her.

A few people move away from their seat.
They can’t stand the awful smell of the street.
She knows fully and she keeps it discreet
but, I notice, I notice.

Oh, she was beautiful, beautiful…a child of the jungle x 2

We see the colours of the people from so many places
in the corners of the street and in the subway stations.
Scrounging for a quarter from the parking meters
or a little bit of popcorn from the old school theatres.

How do we not see how we got to this place?
How a child from the jungle ends up falling from grace?
We have a lot to learn in this human race
but if you’re looking for answers just look at her face….

Oh, she was beautiful, beautiful…a child of the jungle
Oh, she was beautiful, beautiful…a child of the jungle
