Smash Mouth – I Wanna Be Like You lyrics

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 wanna be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And 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 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

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be like you
I wanna 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

Hit it, papa bear

Yeah you!
I wanna be like you
I wanna 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
