Lyrics
Now I'm the king of the swingers
the jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what's been botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkin around!
Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be like yoo
I wanna walk like you
Talk like you, too
You'll see it's true
An ape like mee
Can learn to be human too!
Now here's your part of the deal, cuz...
Lay the secret on me of man's red fire
But I don't know how to make fire
Now don't try to kid me, mancub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dream come true
Now gimme the secret, mancub
C'mon. Clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you
Habadoodee! With a Reep-a-nazza.
Hebadohbadoyy! With a la-pah-ziti.
Yoo hoo!
I wanna be like you
I wanna talk like you
Walk like you, too
You'll see it's true
Someone like mee
Can learn to be
Like someone like me
Take me home daddy!
Can learn to be
Like someone like you
One more time! yeahhh
Can learn to be
Like someone like me!
