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's botherin' me

I wanna be a man, man cub, yeah
And stroll right in the town
I wanna 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 just see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too

Now don't try to kid me, man cub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dream come true

And give me the secret, man cub
Clue me, I know 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 just see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too, yeah, yeah, yeah

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