I Wanna Be Like You

This song is by Los Lobos and appears…

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

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

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

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

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

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
