Now I'm the king of the swingers, the jungle V.I.P
I reached the top and had to stop
And that's what's bothering me
I want to be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town
And be just like those other men
I'm tired of monkeying around

Ooh-bi-doo, I wan'na be like you
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be ooh hoo ooh man too ooh ooh

Now don't try to kid me, man-cub, I'll make a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire to make my dreams come true
So give me the secret, man-cub, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower so I can be like you

Ooh-bi-doo, I wan'na be like you
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be ooh hoo ooh man too ooh ooh

Now here is you part of the deal 'cause
Lay the secret on me of man's red fire

You hoo hoo, I wanna be like you
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too ooh
And you see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be ooh hoo man too ooh ooh

Ooh-bi-doo, I wan'na be like you
I wanna walk like you, talk like you
You see it's true, true of me, like me
Can learn to be ooh hoo ooh man too
