Jungle Fresh

This track is a reworking of 19/2000 that appeared on Laika Come Home. This song is closely related to 19/2000 Dub, (one is just a slight remix of the other). The song retains most of the vocals from the original 19/2000 track.

The world is spinning too fast
I'm buying lead Nike shoes
To keep myself tethered
To the days I've tried to lose

My mama said to slow down
You must make your shoes
Stop dancing to the music
Of Gorillaz in a happy mood

Keep a mild groove on

Here you go!
Get the cool
Get the cool shoe shine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoe shine

There's a monkey in the jungle
Watching a vapour trail
Caught up in the conflict
Between his brain and his tail

And if time to elimination
Then we got nothing to lose
Please repeat the message
It's the music that we choose

Keep a mild groove on

Get the cool
Get the cool shoe shine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoe shine

Here you go!
