lyrics

A journey made by land or
a journey made by sea
Hard to make it all with the
body that we see
So Mumbo makes it easy
transforms you as he can
and when you venture forth
on your own feet you shall stand

Your own mind might be ready
but your body's probly not
You must prepare to journey
even if it's cold or hot
Like Chimpy takes from Conga
Or the totem that needs eggs
You'll have to move quite quickly
whether you have fins or legs

So haul away boys, haul away me boys
Mumbo gives his gift to transform and delight
We must make haste so that Tooty we can see
On top of Mumbo's Mountain is the place we want to be

A clever transformation
is what Mumbo can provide
Your bear and bird bodies
Are what Mumbo knows to hide
Cross the barren plains
and go through Ticker's lair
Mumbo wants to help you
whether hairless or with hair

Wiggle round those paths
that are narrow and quite long
Mumbo helps you out
while singing his ol' song
When finished with your work, you know
Mumbo will be there
To turn you back to bear and bird
so people do not stare

So haul away boys, haul away me boys
Mumbo gives his gift to transform and delight
We must make haste so that Tooty we can see
On top of Mumbo's Mountain is the place we want to be

Mumbo wants to see you
finish up your quest
When it comes to beating Grunty
Mumbo knows that you are best
You gotta get to Tooty
as quickly as you can
Mumbo wants to see you beat Grunty
and he will be a fan

When Mumbo does his work
he's the best that you will find
He'll help you best ol' Grunty
Cuz he's one of your kind
Tooty's out there waiting
and Mumbo wants to see
Defeat the witch cuz Mumbo's
the best for you and me

So haul away boys, haul away me boys
Mumbo gives his gift to transform and delight
We must make haste so that Tooty we can see
On top of Mumbo's Mountain is the place we want to be

So haul away boys, haul away me boys
Mumbo gives his gift to transform and delight
We must make haste so that Tooty we can see
On top of Mumbo's Mountain is the place we want to be

So haul away boys, haul away me boys
Mumbo gives his gift to transform and delight
We must make haste so that Tooty we can see
On top of Mumbo's Mountain is the place we want to be
