Welcome to the jungle
We’ve got fun ‘n’ games
We got everything you want
Honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey,
We got your disease – Gun’s N Roses
I hope this doesn’t offend anyone but, I just found out the song Welcome to the Jungle was by Gun’s N Roses. I know this may be an insult to the rock gods out there, but let’s just say that I am enlightened and I may have to check them out this Friday at BB&T Field, see you there!
