Wanna Be Like You - Ukulele Chords

The classic song from the film The Jungle Book - everyone knows this one and it's a great tune to play to a crowd - perfect opportunity for some singalong on the chorus!



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, mancub,
And stroll right into [E7]town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin’ a[Am]round!

 [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 [E7]

[G7] Instrumental chorus C A7 D7 G7 C G7 C A7 D7 G7 C (in the original this is repeated many times over as part of the film!)

 Now [Am]don't try to kid me mancub
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, mancub
Clue me what to [E7]do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like [Am]you

[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 ...

[G7] Instrumental chorus C A7 D7 G7 C G7 C A7 D7 G7 C

[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
Can [D7]learn to be [G7]human [C]too.... [G7] [C]
