‘Gitarzan’ by Ray Stevens

“Gitarzan” is a novelty song released by Ray Stevens in 1969, about a character who lives in a jungle and forms a musical band with his female partner, Jane, and their pet monkey. The song features Tarzan Yells, scat singing, and a funky Boogie Woogie, as well as a quote from the song “Swinging on a Star”, with the line “Carrying Moonbeams Home in a Jar” sung with the wrong notes. The song reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1969, and #10 in Canada in May 1969. The music and lyrics were written by Stevens with a title supplied by Bill Justis. Justis is officially credited as Bill Everette.
