Now [Am]I'm the king of the swingers, oh.
The jungle VI[E7]P, 
I've reached the top and had to stop 
And that's what botherin' [Am]me. 
I wanna be a man, Man Cub, 
And stroll right into [E7]town 
And be just like the other men 
I'm tired of monkeyin' a-[Am]↓round!

{soc}
[G7]↓Oh, [C]oo-bee-doo 
I wanna be like [A7]you 
I wanna [D7]walk like you, 
[G7]Talk like you, [C]too. 
[G7]↓You'll ↓see ↓it's [C]true 
An ape like [A7]me 
Can [D7]learn to be [G7]human, [C]too.

{c:verse 2}
Now [Am]don't try to kid me, Man Cub 
I made a deal with [E7]you 
What I desire is man's red fire 
To make my dream come [Am]true. 
Give me the secret, Man Cub, 
Clue me what to [E7]do 
Give me the power of man's red flower 
So I can be like [Am]↓you.

{soc}
[G7]↓Oh, [C]oo-bee-doo 
I wanna be like [A7]you 
I wanna [D7]walk like you, 
[G7]Talk like you, [C]too. 
[G7]↓You'll ↓see ↓it's [C]true 
Someone like [A7]me 
Can [D7]learn to be [G7]like someone like [C]me. [A7]
Can [D7]learn to be [G7]like someone like [C]you. [A7]
Can [D7]learn to be [G7]like someone like [C]me.
