I Wanna Be Like You (From "The Jungle Book")

Lyricist:     Composer:

Now I'm the king of the swingers, whoa
The jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what 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, ooh-bee-doo, (Oop-dee-wee)
I wanna be like you-hu-hu (Hop-dee-doo-bee-do-bow)
I wanna walk like you (Cheep)
Talk like you (Cheep)
To-o-oo! (Wee-bee-dee-bee-dee-boo)
You'll see it's tru-u-ue (Shoo-be-dee-doo)
An ape like me-e-e (Scooby-doo-bee-doo-bee)
Can learn to be
Hu-u-uman
To-o-oo!

Gee, cousin Louie, you're doin' real good.
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!
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!
