​I Wan'na Be Like You

This song is by UB40.

Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle V-I-P
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what bothering me

I wan'na be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeying around

Oh, ooh, bee, doo, I wan'na be like you
I wan'na walk like you, 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, mancub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dream come true

Give me the secret, mancub
Come on, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you

Oh, ooh, bee, doo, I wan'na be like you
I wan'na walk like you, talk like you too
You'll see it's true, someone like me
Can learn to be like someone like you

Can learn to be like someone like you
Can learn to be like someone like you
