Chincherinchee lyrics

Where the jungle trees are tall
Grows a flower sweet to see
Its a purdy flower they call chincherinchee!

There a boy sang all day long
To a maiden tenderly
And he called her in his song chincherinchee!

While the tom toms played
He sang his serenade
In the moonlight:
Sweet chincherinchee, youre divine,
Sweet chincherinchee say youre mine!
Say youll be mine my whole life through!
Sweet chincherinchee, I love you!

Everyone will agree
Shes as sweet as can be
Shes so kissable and caress-able chincherinchee!

Everybody can see
How exciting is she
Shes embraceable, irreplaceable chincherinchee!

While the tom toms played
He sang his serenade . . .

< instrumental verse >

Every night they used to meet
By a tall banyan tree
Where he sang his heart to sweet chincherinchee!

While the tom toms played
He sang his serenade
In the moonlight:
Sweet chincherinchee, youre divine,
Sweet chincherinchee say youre mine!
Say youll be mine my whole life through!
Sweet chincherinchee, I love you!

Sweet chincherinchee, youre divine,
Sweet chincherinchee say youre mine!
Say youll be mine my whole life through!
Sweet chincherinchee, I love you!
