Quotes: Darkest Africa
Who lives down in Deepest, Darkest, Africa?
First verse in the opening to Kimba the White Lion

" Then I saw the Congo, creeping through the black
Cutting through the jungle with a golden track...
Listen to the creepy proclamation
Blown past the lairs of the forest-nation
Blown past the white-ant's hill of clay
Blown past the marsh where the butterflies play
'Be careful what you do, or
Mumbo-Jumbo, God of the Congo
And all of the other
Gods of the Congo
Mumbo-Jumbo will Hoo-Doo you
Mumbo-Jumbo will Hoo-Doo you
Mumbo-Jumbo will... Hoo...Doo... you...' "
— Vachel Lindsay, "The Congo, A Study of the Negro Race"

"Bongo bongo bongo I don't wanna leave the Congo oh nonononono! Bingo bango bungo I'm so hop-py in the jungle I refuse to go..."
The Andrews Sisters featuring Danny Kaye, "Fallout Civilization"
