Disney Reggae Club Soundtrack Lyrics

Ub40 - I Wan'na Be Like You Lyrics
Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what's botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkin around!

Oh, oobee doo (hoopdeewee)
I wanna be like yoo-hoo-hoo (hapdeedoobydoowop)
I wanna walk like you (cheep)
Talk like you (cheep), too-oo-o (weebydeebydeewoo)
You'll see it's true (shoobedeedoo)
An ape like mee-e-e (scoobeedoobeedoobeep)
Can learn to be huu-uuu-uman too-oo-oo!

(scat and dialogue)

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
Now gimme the secret, mancub
C'mon, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you


Yoo--hoo-hoo! (hoopdeeweep)
I wanna be like you-oo-oo (hapdeedoobedoobop)
I wanna talk like you (cheep)
Walk like you (cheep), too-oo-oo (weebadeebadoodop)
You'll see it's true-oo-oo (Shhobeedeeboo)
Someone like me-ee-ee (scoobeedoobeedooweep)
Can learn to be
Like someone like me
TAKE me home daddy!
Can learn to be
Like someone like you
ONE more time! yeahhh
Can learn to be
Like someone like meEEEEE!
