"I Wanna Be Like You (Lou Bega)" is a cover of the song "I Wanna Be Like You." It is sung by Lou Bega.

History

Lou Bega's version has some change and omitted lyrics from the original. It was featured in the PC Game The Jungle Book and also, in the Ubi Soft/Disney Interactive video game Walt Disney's The Jungle Book Rhythm n' Groove, Bega participates in a challenge with his namesake. The player dances as King Louie, attempting to dance to Bega's rendition of "I Wanna Be Like You". Doing so will unlock a music video of him with children dancing to the aforementioned song. The Video is directed by Volker Hannvacker.

Lyrics

Welcome to my jungle

I'm King Lou

You want to dance with me

Can you dance with me


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 botherin' me.

I wanna be a man, mancub,

And stroll right into town,

And be just like the other men,

I'm tired 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, mancub,

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, mancub,

Come on,

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

Can you dance with me


Can You Walk like Me

Can You Talk like Me, ha ha

Can You Walk like Me

baby Can You Talk like Me, ow

Can You Walk like Me

Can You Talk like Me, ow

walk like, talk like

walk like, talk like me

Can you dance with me



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

That's what I'm going do



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

Human too. ow

Ahh Ahh

Oh Ya
