"W-I-L-D" is an upbeat song featured in The Jungle Book 2 sung by Baloo. During the song, Baloo is basically bragging about how cool and fun he and his jungle friends are while Mowgli joins in the fun.

Lyrics

Baloo: When we start to move, hey honey
It ain't no joke

We got a savage groove, we didn't learn
from human folk
(Sparrow: No human folk! Ha ha ha!)
'scuse our incivility
We're W-I-I-I-L-D!!!

When the music plays
All the people stomp their feet
(Animal: You'd better go, Baloo.)

But a stomping paw can lay down a better beat! Haha!
Tell me we ain't naturally
Chorus: W-I-I-I-L-D!!!

Baloo: It's a snap to bring out the beast in you
You're free like ze bird, it's true
Or a frog, or a hog, or- oh man, whatever!
(Chorus: Baby, we were born free!)

From the maddest cat to the sweetest little deer
Tonight's the night we're gonna get our tails in gear
Show me your ferocity
Go W-I-I-I-L-D!!!

Chorus: We snort, we squeak
Up high or deep underground,

We snarl, we shriek
(Baloo: Vout o' roonie!)
We fly round and round and round!
(Parrot: *scats*)
Baloo: Oh, go you sweet thing, that's inhuman, baby!

Mongooses: The old mongoose gets good and loose!
Ocelots: The ocelot gives it all he's got!
Parakeet: The parakeet goes (with the other parakeets) "tweedle deet"
Macaques: The red macaque shouts "Hang on, Jack!"

Worm: The tiny worm
Elephant: The pachyderm
Ocelot: The spotted cat
Mouse: The water rat
Bird: The great cuckoo
Chorus: The bear Baloo (Baloo: It's me!) are W-I-L-D!!!

Baloo: Here's the thing: if we're broke, we never squawk
We don't need to check no clock to know what time it is!

All: IT'S TIME TO ROCK!!!

Baloo: When you dance like that, hey honey
It sure is hip
(Rhino: Oh, I can't stand it!)
I wanna tip my hat but, I got no hat to tip!
But I don't need no hat.
Ask me why and I won't lie

Chorus: W-I-I-I-L-D!!!
We grunt, we growl, up high, or deep underground
We hoot we howl, we fly, round and round and round

Baloo: My oh me, it's plain to see
Chorus: W-I-I-I-L-D!!!

Baloo: He she me unique-ally
Chorus: W-I-I-I-L-D!!!

Baloo: Every beastie running free
All: W-I-I-I-I-I-I-L-D!!!


Trivia

  • At one point during the song, a meerkat and a warthog resembling Timon and Pumbaa make a cameo.
  • Though the film is set in India, there are hippos and ocelots participating in this song. In real life, ocelots live in South America while hippos live in Africa; thus, these animals are not native to India in real life.
