Los Lobos – I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song) lyrics

Now I'm the king of the swingers world
The jungle be I be
I reach the top and have to stop
And that's what's a bother to me

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

So, ooh, I wan'na be just like you
I wan'na walk like you
Talk like you too
You 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

Give me the secret man cub
Just clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you

So, ooh, I wan'na be just like you
I wan'na walk like you
Talk like you too
You see it's true
An ape like me
Can learn to be human too
You see it's true
An ape like me
Can learn to be human too
