Can you hear it?
Yeah man

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 wan'na be a man, mancub, and stroll right into town
And be just like the other men, I'm tired of monkeyin' around

Ohh, ooh, bee, doo
I wan'na be like you, I wan'na 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 made a deal with you
What I desire was 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

Ohh, ooh, bee, doo
I wan'na be like you, I wan'na walk like you
Talk like you, too, you'll see it's true
An ape like me can learn to be human too

Check this out, can you hear it?
Yeah, get it, papa bear

Yeah, you, I wan'na be like you, I wan'na walk like you
Talk like you, too, you'll see it's true
Someone like me can learn to be
Someone like me can learn to be someone like you
I can learn to be someone like me, yeah man
