A Lion Screams Tonight


Marcus:  Ice cream away.  Ice cream away.
                Ice cream away.  Ice cream away.
                In the jungle, the mighty jungle,
                a lion screams tonight.
                Hut, hut.

Cyndi:  Whoa, Marcus, what are you singing?

Marcus:  A Lion Screams Tonight.  I heard it this morning and it's now my favorite song.

Cyndi:  No, no, in that song the lion sleeps.   Why is your lion screaming?

Marcus:  For ice cream, of course.  You remember - I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.  Even the lion.

Cyndi:  Suddenly I have a headache. 

Marcus:  That's what happens when you eat ice cream too fast.  You get an ice cream headache.  Don't eat so fast next time.

Cyndi:  But I didn't eat any.  *mumbles*  You gave me the headache.

Here are The Tokens with the original - the correct - version.
