The washer woman washes in the jungle this time

Down in the jungle where nobody goes
There lives a wishy washy woman washing here clothes.
She says "Ooh Ahh, Goshy Goshy Goo"
She says "Ooh Ahh, Goshy Goshy Goo"
Down in the jungle where nobody goes
There lives a wishy washy woman washing her clothes.

Down in the jungle where nobody goes
There lives a wishy washy woman washing here clothes.
She says "Ooh Ahh, Goshy Goshy Goo"
She says "Ooh Ahh, Goshy Goshy Goo"
Down in the jungle where nobody goes
There lives a wishy washy woman washing her clothes.
