I Wanna Be Like You (The Monkey Song) [From Jungle Book] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now I'm the king of the swinger's world
The jungle VIP
I reach the top and have to stop
And that's what's a bother to me
Verse 2
I wanna be a man, a man cub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeying around
Verse 3
So, ooh ooh ooh, I wanna be just like you
I wanna walk like you
And talk like you, too
You'll see it's true
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too
Verse 4
Now don't try to kid me, man cub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dream come true
Verse 5
Give me the secret, man cub
Just clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you
Verse 6
So, ooh ooh ooh, I wanna be just 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
You'll see it's true
An ape like me
Can learn to be human, too
