LyricsEdit

King Louie: Ababa doot-doot-doobie doop!
Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle V.I.P.
I've reached the top
And had to stop and that's what's bothering me
I wanna be a man, man cub
And stroll right into town,
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeying around!

King Louie (Monkey Chorus): Oh oo-be-doo! (Hoop-dee-wee)
I wanna be like you-hoo-hoo! (Hop-dee-doobee-doobah)
I wanna walk like you, (Cheep)
Talk like you (Cheep)
Too-oo-oo! (weebee-deebee-doobah)

You'll see it's true (Shoo-bee-doo)
An ape like me-ee-ee (Scooby-dooby-dooby)
Can learn to be hu-u-uman too-oo-oo!

[Dialogue]
Mowgli: Gee, Cousin Louie, you're doing real good!

King Louie: Now here's your part of the deal 'cuz... lay the secret on me of man's red fire.

Mowgli: But I don't how to make fire.

King Louie: Now don't try to kid me, man-cub,
I made a deal with you!
What I desire
Is man's red fire
To make my dream come true!
Now give me the secret man cub,
Come on, clue me what to do.
Give me the power
Of man's red flower,
So I can be like you!

[Dialogue]
Bagheera: Fire... So, that's what that scoundrel's after.

Baloo: I'll tear him limb from limb! I'll beat him! I'll... I'll... Yeah. Well, man, what a beat.

Bagheera: Will you stop that silly beat business and listen?! This will take brains, not brawn.

Baloo: You better believe it, and I'm loaded with both!

Bagheera: Will you listen?!

Baloo: Oh yeah... Yeah.

Bagheera: Now then, while you create a disturbance, I'll go and rescue Mowgli. You got that?

Baloo: I'm gone, man. Solid gone.

Bagheera: Not yet, Baloo!

‘’’King Louie:’’’I'll ape your mannerisms.

We'll be a set of twins.

No one will know where mancub ends and orangutan begins

And when I eat bananas

I won't peel them with my feet

Cause I'll become a man, mancub,

and learn some "et-ti-keet

Oh

All at once by various: You-hoo-hoo! (Hoop-dee-wee)
I wanna be like you-hoo-hoo! (Hop-dee-doobee-doobah)
I wanna walk like you, (Cheep)
Talk like you (Cheep)
Too! (Weebee-deebee-doobah)

You see it's true, (Shoo-bee-do)
Someone like me-ee-ee, (Scooby-dooby-dooby)

Flunkey Monkey: Can learn to be like someone like me!

Baloo: Take me home, daddy!

All: Can learn to be like someone like you!

King Louie: One more time!

Baloo: Yeah!
Can learn to be like someone like me-eeeee!

Cee-de-do-bop-bop
Bada-doodle
Dot-andot-andot-andot-andot...

Man!
