Per artbrooks' request in this thread, "Once we get this one nailed down, I'm trying to remember all the words for the hiking chant that went "Tongo", "Jiminy by-by-oh"..."

Here's the version I know.


Tongo
(repeat song)

Tongo!
Jiminy bye-o bye-o
Tongo!
Oop da lay coom by o!
OO wa lay,
Mah le pah mah lee way!

Tarzan!
Swinging on a rubber band!
Tarzan!
Fell into a frying pan!
Oooh, that's hot!
Now Tarzan has a tan.

Jane!
Swinging on a candy cane! (or "Cruising in her air-o-plane")
Jane!
Fell into a traffic lane!
Oooh, it hurts!
Now poor Jane has no brain. (or "Now poor Jane has a pain.")

Cheetah!
Fell in love with Rita! (or "Had a friend named Rita")
Rita!
Rita was an alligator!
Ooo, that's bad!
Now poor Cheetah is meatah!

Cheetah!
Fell in love with (insert name)!
(insert name)!
Fell in love with Cheetah!
Oooh, that's great!
Now Cheetah has a date.
Now (insert name) has a date!
Now when's the wedding date?

(repeat first verse, echoing the last line quieter and quieter
