Now I'm the king of the swingers, boy, Jungle V.I.P.
Well I've reached the top, and had to stop and that's what's bothering me
I wanna be a man, now man cub stroll right into town
Be just like the other men, I'm tired of monkeying around

So woo woo ooh, I wanna be just like you
Wanna walk like you, talk like you do
And you see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too, yeah

Now don't you mess with me man cub, I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire so I can be just like you
And don't you mess with me man-cub, show me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower so I can be just like you

So woo woo ooh, I wanna be just like you
Wanna walk like you, talk like you do
And you see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too, yeah

So woo woo ooh, I wanna be just like you
Wanna walk like you, talk like you do
And you see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too, yeah

So ooh, I wanna be just like you
Wanna walk like you, talk like you do
You see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too, yeah

Said ooh, I wanna be just like you
Wanna walk like you, talk like you do
You see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too, yeah
