The Cannibal King

This is probably one of my favorite songs I learned at scout camp. Sorry, I will not be posting an audio file of me singing it (unless you need it for a campout or court of honor, in which case I'd be happy to help).

Oh, the cannibal king with the big nose ring
Fell in love with the Indian ma-a-aid
And every night by the pale moon light
Across the stream he wa-a-de

He'd hug and he kiss his pretty little miss
Underneath the bamboo tree-e-e
And every night by the pale moon light,
It sounds like this to me-e-e:

A-ROOMP (kissing sound) (kissing sound)
A-ROOMP (kissing sound) (kissing sound)
Honey won't you marry me-e-e?
A-ROOMP (kissing sound) (kissing sound)
A-ROOMP (kissing sound) (kissing sound)
Underneath the bamboo tre-e-e.

If you'll be M-I-N-E mine
I'll be T-H-I-N-E thine
And I'll L-O-V-E love you
All the T-I-M-E time
You are the B-E-S-T best
Of all the R-E-S-T rest
And I'll L-O-V-E love you
All the T-I-M-E time!

I'd like and audio and video of you singing it. Josh's Eagle court will be coming up sometime in the next two years. I'd love to show your rendition!
