i wanna be like you lyrics – big bad voodoo daddy

now, i’m the king of the swinger’s ball.
jumbo v.i.p.
i witchitan had this job,
and that’s what’s bothering me.
a wannabe a man maker can stroll right into town.
and be just like the other man.
i’m tired of monkeying around.
so, oooh-oooh-oooh.
i wan’na be just like you.
i wan’na walk like you,
talk like you, ooh-ooh do.
you see, it’s true,
an ape like me
can learn to be human, too.
yeah.
now, don’t you mess with me, maker,
i made a deal with you.
what i desire is man’s red fire,
so i can be just like you.
now, don’t you mess with me, maker,
and screw me out of you.
so, give the power of man’s red flower,
so i can be just like you.
so, ooh-ooh-ooh.
i wan’na be just like you.
i wan’na walk like you,
talk like you, ooh-ooh do.
you see, it’s true,
an ape like me
can learn to be human, too.
yes, and ooh.
i wan’na be just like you.
i wan’na walk like you,
talk like you, ooh-ooh do.
you see, it’s true,
an ape like me
can learn to be human, too.
