Now, I'm the King of the Swinger's Ball.
Jumbo V.I.P.
I Witchitan had this job,
And that's what's bothering me.
A wannabe a man maker can stroll right into town.
And be just like the other man.
I'm tired of monkeying around.
So, oooh-oooh-oooh.
I wan'na be just like you.
I wan'na walk like you,
Talk like you, ooh-ooh do.
You see, it's true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too.
Yeah.
Now, don't you mess with me, Maker,
I made a deal with you.
What I desire is man's red fire,
So I can be just like you.
Now, don't you mess with me, Maker,
And screw me out of you.
So, give the power of man's red flower,
So I can be just like you.
So, ooh-ooh-ooh.
I wan'na be just like you.
I wan'na walk like you,
Talk like you, ooh-ooh do.
You see, it's true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too.
Yes, and ooh.
I wan'na be just like you.
I wan'na walk like you,
Talk like you, ooh-ooh do.
You see, it's true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too.
