In The Congo-1929
  Dominion C347 Cobb/Lutzen

Southern Skies, sapphire seas, crocodiles, chimpanzees,
Cocoa palms, rubber trees, thats the Congo.

Where the blazing tropic sun, bakes you like a hot cross bun,
Where mosquitoes make you run, thats the Congo.

Its grand getting tanned when you loll upon the sand in the Congo, in the Congo.
All that you wear is a little here and there in the Congo, in the Congo.
You take a hut up in the tree, then youre in high society
And all the lovely scenery,
You get a view of the swamp where the alligators romp.

Warm summer nights when they light the harbour lights in the Congo, in the Congo.
Gay Congorites flock around to see the sights, twenty cocoa beans they pay,
To see Miss Wongo wag her little bongo, sing a little Congo-lay,
Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! In the Congo cabaret.

Its grand getting canned when you loll upon the sand,
In Wigans Congo, in Wigans Congo.
You dont wear any togs you only wear a pair of clogs,
In Wigans Congo, in Wigans Congo.
You take a hut upon the pier, where they supply you with free beer,
The colliers shout "By gum hear, hear"
You get a view of the tripe as its getting nice and ripe.

Warm summer nights when they light the harbour lights
In Wigans Congo, in Wigans Congo.
Gay Wiganites flock around to see the sites, twenty cowheels each they pay.
To see fat Mrs. Marston do the Wigan Charleston, Im sure shes going to bust one day.

Eee! Eee! Eee! By gum! In Wigans Congo cabaret

Eee! Eee! Eee! By gum! In Wigans Congo cabaret
