Can learn to be human too.

Now I’m the king of the swingers, oh, the jungle VI P,
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’ a round!

Oh, oo bee 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 is man’s red fire, to make my dream come true.
Give me the secret, mancub, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man’s red flower so I can be like you.

Oh, oo bee 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

I wanna ape 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
I’ll be a man, man cub and learn some etiqueet

Oh, oo bee 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

Oh, oo bee 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
