Now I'm the king of the swingers, ooh
The jungle VIP
I've 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 the other men
I'm tired of monkey-ing around
I want to be like you (ooh-ooh)
I want to walk like you
Talk like you
You'll see it's true (ooh-ooh)
An ape like me-e-e
Can learn to be hu-man too-ooh-ooh
(Mowgli): Gee cousin Louis, you're doin real good
(Louis): Now here's your part of the deal cuz
Lay the secret on me of man's red fire
(Mowgli): But I don't know how to make fire
(Louis): 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
Now give me the secret man cub
Come on- clue me- what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you
