I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song) (From "The Jungle Book"/Soundtrack)

Now I′m the king of the swingers, oh
The jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that′s what botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin′ around!

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be like you
I wanna walk like you,
Talk like you, too
You′ll see it's true an ape like me
Can learn to be human too

Now don′t try to kid me, mancub
I'll make a deal with you
What I desire is man′s red fire
To make my dream come true
Now, give me the secret, mancub
Come on, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be like you
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too
You′ll see it's true someone like me
Can learn to be like someone like me
Can learn to be like someone like you
Can learn to be like someone like me
