FYI, in case you haven't encountered them, the odd words are from the
language of the great apes in the Tarzan mythos.  "Kreegah!" is "Danger!";
I've forgotten what "Bundolo" is but Tarzan always yelled it right after
"Kreegah!".  The Dum-Dum was a crude anthropoid ritual dance performed
by the light of the moon; in one memorable passage, ERB described it as 
the fountainhead of all human religions.
