About It's a Jungle Out There

"It's a Jungle Out There" is a song written by Randy Newman and used as the theme song for the TV series Monk starting in its second season. In 2004, it won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music. As the first season's theme song "Monk Theme" had won the same award the previous year, Monk became the first series to have two different theme songs win an Emmy for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music in consecutive years. The song is not to be confused with the Harry Nilsson song of the same name from his 1975 album Duit on Mon Dei.

It's a jungle out there
Disorder and confusion everywhere
No one seems to care
Well I do
Hey, who's in charge here?
It's a jungle out there
Poison in the very air we breathe
Do you know what's in the water that you drink?
Well I do, and it's amazing
People think I'm crazy, 'cause I worry all the time
If you paid attention, you'd be worried too
You better pay attention
Or this world we love so much might just kill you
I could be wrong now, but I don't think so
'Cause there's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there

It's a jungle out there
Violence and danger everywhere 
It's brother against brother 
Pouding on each other
Like they would make a mess
It's a jungle out there
It's a jungle here too
You got a tap right on your phone 
A microphone and camera check on everything you do 
Call it paranoia as the saying goes
Even paranoids have their meek

I'm not the one who's crazy, I'm not afraid of them
They're afraid of you and me
I could be wrong there, but I don't think so 
'Cause it's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there 

It's a jungle out there 
Even the cops are scared today
So if you see a uniform 
Do exactly what they say
Or make a run for it
I'm only kidding with ya

'Cause it's a jungle out there
It's a jungle out there
