Big Bad Voodoo Daddy – I Wanna Be Like You lyrics

Now, I'm the King of the Swinger's Ball.
Jungle V. I. P.
Well, I reached the top and had to stop,
And that's what's bothering me.
A wannabe a man, now man cub, stroll right into town.
And be just like the other men,
I'm tired of monkeying around.
So, oooh-oooh-oooh.
I wanna be just like you.
I wanna walk like you,
Talk like you do.
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.
Now, don't you mess with me, man cub,
Tell me what to do.
Give the power of man's red fire,
So I can be just like you.
So, ooh-ooh-ooh.
I wanna be just like you.
I wanna walk like you,
Talk like you do.
You see, it's true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too.
Yes, and ooh.
I wanna be just like you.
I wanna walk like you,
Talk like you do.
You see, it's true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too.
