I Wanna Be Like You

Jungle Book

Now I'm the king of the swingers, the jungle V. I. P. 
I've reached the top and had to stop and that's what's botherin' me
I wanna be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town
And be just like the other men, I'm tired of monkeyin' 'round, oh

 Ooh,  ooh,  ooh,  I wanna be like you ooh ooh
I wanna walk like you, talk like you too, ooh, ooh
 You'll see it's true ooh,  ooh,  an ape like me, ee, ee
Can learn to be hu-ooh-ooh-man too, ooh, ooh   

Don't try to kid me man-cub and don't get in a stew
What I desire is man's red fire so I can be like you
Give me the secret man-cub, just clue me what to do
Give me the pow'r of man's red flow'r and make my dreams come true


I like your mannerisms, we'll be a set of twins
No one will know where man-cub ends and orangutan begins
And when I eat bananas, I won't peel them with my feet
'Cause I'll become a man-cub and learn some etti - keet.

In the second verse, the end of the second and fourth lines should be swapped.

*So I can be like you - fourth line
