the natives are restless lyrics – don tiki

let me tell you ’bout my neighborhood
’cause when you visit me tonight
ooh, you better stay out of the shadows,
stay in the bright, bright light
don’t take fright,
the natives are restless tonight

they’re not particularly interested
in me or you,
they’re just looking for some meat
to put into their stew
don’t take fright,
the natives are restless tonight

and they go
“oompapa oompapa oompapa hey hey,
oompapa oompapa oompapa hey hey,
oompapa oompapa oompapa hey hey,
oompapa oompapa oompapa hey hey”

it’s best to stay upstairs
with the good-book all alone
’cause when the drums start burnin’
you better leave your sermons at home
don’t take fright,
the natives are restless tonight

you might consider yourself lucky
just to be alive
’cause it’s a full moon tonight
and it’s just right for a conquering tribe
don’t take fright,
the natives are restless tonight
