"I Wanna Be Like You" as written by Richard Sherman and Robert Sherman....
Now I'm the king of the swingers, boy, Jungle V.I.P.
I've reached the top, and had to stop
And that's what's bothering me
I want to be a man, now man cub
Stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeying around

So woowooooh, I want to be just like you
I want to walk like you, talk like you do
You see it's true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human too, yeah

Now, don't you mess with me man-cub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire
So I can be just like you

An' don't you mess with me man-cub
Show me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be just like you
