Mini Mowgli Audition Song Lyrics
It's fun growing up in the Jungle!
There's a different game every day
It's fun growing up in the jungle,
You can rough and tumble with the animals
We bundle out to play
And you don't have to worry about anything
You don't have to care about a thing
You can run and you can hide
You can jump and you can slide
You can shout and play about and you can sing
You can sing sing sing sing sing sing sing
You don't have to worry about a thing!
