Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle V.I.P.
I've reached the top, I've had to stop
And that's what's bothering me

Four ladies chain
I wanna be a man, man-cub
You chain 'em home
Stroll right into town
You promenade
To be just like all the other men
I'm tired of monkeying around


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Oh now the heads square thru
Out to the corner lady, dosado
Swing thru tonight, the boys you trade, boy run right
And then, ferris wheel
The centers pass thru, swing thru
Swing your corner, promenade her too
Can learn to be like someone like you


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I'll ape your mannerisms
We'll be a set of twins
Hey, no one will know where the man-cub ends
And the our-rang-a-tang begins

Four ladies chain
And when I peel bananas
You chain 'em home
I won't peel them with my feet
You promenade
I'll learn me some man "man" nerisms
And some "man" etti-keet


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Oobee doo...I wanna be like you
I wanna talk like you and walk like you do, too

Four ladies chain
Someone like me
You chain 'em home
Can learn to be
You promenade
Like someone like ...


TAG

Four ladies chain across and back now
Can learn to be like someone like ...
Left allemande and you swing with your girl
Can learn to be hu-ooh-ooh-man too ooh-ooh

I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song) Lyrics ID: 1133

Now I'm the king of the swingers, yeah
The jungle V.I.P.
I've reached the top, and had to stop
And that's what's botherin' me

Oh, scooby-doo...I wanna be like you-ou-ou
I wanna walk like you, talk like you do-oo-oo
You see it's true-ue-ue, an ape like me-ee-ee
Can learn to be hu-u-u-man, too-oo-oo

I wanna be a man, man-cub
And stroll right into town
To be just like all the other men
I'm tired of monkeying around

Oh, scooby-doo...I wanna be like you-ou-ou
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too-oo-oo
You see it's true-ue-ue, an ape like me-ee-ee
Can learn to be like someone like you

I'll ape your mannerisms
We'll be a set of twins
Hey, no one will know where the man-cub ends
And the our-rang-a-tang begins

And when I peel bananas
I won't peel them with my feet
I'll learn me some man mannerisms
And some man etti-keet

Oh, scooby-doo...I wanna be like you-ou-ou
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too-oo-oo
You see it's true-ue-ue, an ape like me-ee-ee
Can learn to be hu-u-u-man, too-oo-oo

Lyrics by Richard Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.
