Album: Appetite for Destruction (1987)
Canzone: Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the Jungle è il secondo singolo estratto dall’album Appetite for Destruction ed è considerata una delle più importanti canzoni rock degli anni ottanta e novanta. Fu scritta da Axl Rose e Slash. Secondo Rose, l’ispirazione per il testo giunse da un incontro che lui e un amico avevano avuto con un barbone mentre vagavano per New York in autostop[1]. Cercando di impaurire i due giovani, l’uomo urlò loro contro: “Sapete dove siete? Siete nella giungla, miei cari, state per morire!”. (Wikipedia)

Il brano è al #467 della 500 Greatest Songs of All Times della rivista Rolling Stone.

Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the jungle
We got fun n’ games
We got everything you want
Honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey
We got your disease

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome to the jungle
We take it day by day
If you want it you’re gonna bleed
But it’s the price you pay
And you’re a very sexy girl
That’s very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights
But you won’t get them for free
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
I, I wanna hear you scream

Welcome to the jungle
It gets worse here everyday
Ya learn ta live like an animal
In the jungle where we play
If you got a hunger for what you see
You’ll take it eventually
You can have anything you want
But you better not take it from me

In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
knees, knees
I’m gonna watch you bleed

And when you’re high you never
Ever want to come down, YEAH!

You know where you are
You’re in the jungle baby
You’re gonna die
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knees, knees
In the jungle
Welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your
It’ gonna bring you down – HA!
