shock the monkey - peter gabriel

I wanna be like you - is the song the monkey (chimp?) sings to Mowgli in Disney's "Jungle Book." There is a killer swing version of this song on the "Swingers" soundtrack

It might take the fun out of it, but you can go to Allmusic.com and search song titles for "jungle" and "monkey." There are hundreds of results.

Sung by Louis Prima for the disney film (he did the voice too) and FYI (not to sound like an ass, so please forgive) he's based on an orangutan...which are great apes. It's kinda like calling apples "oranges". But I suppose would work under these pretenses...
The version from the swingers soundtrack is done by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
just my 2 apes worth...

Hows about "straighten up and fly right", the version I'm thinking of is the Nat King Cole hit.

"Hey, at least I'm housebroken."

One of my favorite songs ....

with one of my favorite lyrics ...
'But the only time that I feel at ease
is swinging up and down in a coconut tree.'

Vern
