(Richard M. Sherman-Robert B. Sherman)

Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle V. I. P
I've reached the top and had the stop
And that's what botherin' me
I wanna be a man, manclub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tried of monkeyin' around

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be 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

Now don't try to kid me, manclub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dreams come true
Give me the secret, manclub
Clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be 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
