   Am                                                                  E7
Now I'm the king of the swingers, the jungle V. I. P.
I've reached the top and had to stop and that's what's botherin' me
I wanna be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town
                                                                                          Am       G7
And be just like the other men, I'm tired of monkeyin' 'round,  oh
C                                                     A7
Ooh,  ooh,  ooh,  I wanna be like you ooh ooh
              D7                  G7               C      A7  Dm
I wanna walk like you, talk like you too, ooh, ooh
G7                 C                                            A7
You'll see it's true ooh,  ooh,  an ape like me, ee, ee
        D7             G7                         C     A7    D7     G7
Can learn to be hu-ooh-ooh-man too, ooh, ooh

Don't try to kid me man-cub and don't get in a stew
What I desire is man's red fire so I can be like you
Give me the secret man-cub, just clue me what to do
Give me the pow'r of man's red flow'r and make my dreams come true


I like your mannerisms, we'll be a set of twins
No one will know where man-cub ends and orangutan begins
And when I eat bananas, I won't peel them with my feet
'Cause I'll become a man-cub and learn some etti - keet.
