This song is by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and appears on the album This Beautiful Life (1999).

This song is a cover of "I Wan'na Be Like You" by ​Louis Prima.
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 wanna be a man, a man cub stroll right into town
And be just like the other men I'm tired of monkeying around

So woowooooh, I wanna be just like you
I wanna 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
Tell me what to do give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be just like you
