"Bingo, Bango, Bongo I don't want to leave the Congo!"

"Civilization" was a song written by Bob Hilliard and Carl Sigman for the 1947 Broadway musical, Angel in the Wings. It was performed by Elaine Stritch.

The song is a satire sung from the perspective of a native "savage" whose village has recently been settled by a missionary trying to make the tribe "civilized". However the savage thinks differently, noting the major flaws in civilized society and ultimately deciding to stay where he is.
