Where the jungle trees are tall
Grows a flower sweet to see
It's 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, you're divine,
Sweet Chincherinchee say you're mine!
Say you'll be mine my whole life through!
Sweet Chincherinchee, I love you!"
Everyone will agree
She's as sweet as can be
She's so kissable and caress-able "Chincherinchee!"
Everybody can see
How exciting is she
She's embraceable, irreplaceable "Chincherinchee!"
While the tom toms played
He sang his serenade . . .

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, you're divine,
Sweet Chincherinchee say you're mine!
Say you'll be mine my whole life through!
Sweet Chincherinchee, I love you!"
"Sweet Chincherinchee, you're divine,
Sweet Chincherinchee say you're mine!
Say you'll be mine my whole life through!
Sweet Chincherinchee, I love you!"
