Its Easter time, I'm at my parents house, and somewhat bored. Picked up my first ever ukulele, tuned it up (rather badly) using a tool I found on the net and decided to record some videos. Like my other vids, the camera is a bit pants, as its the one inbuilt into by laptop, but nevermind. The Uke cost a huge sum - (£10 to be precise!), but that was a few years ago now. Even with inflation, its still a mega credit-crunch crunching tool

This video is I wanna be like You from The Jungle Book, by Disney. Lyrics are below:

Now I'm the king of the swingers, the jungle V.I.P.
I've reached the top and had to stop and that's what's botherin' me
I wanna be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town
And be just like the other men, I'm tired of monkeyin' 'round, oh

oh, ooh, ooh, I wanna be like you ooh ooh
I wanna walk like you, talk like you too, ooh, ooh
You'll see its true ooh, ooh, an ape like me, ee, ee
Can learn to be hu-ooh-ooh-man too, ooh, ooh

Don't try to kid me man-cub and don't get in a stew
What I desire is man's red fire so I can be like you
Give me the secret man-cub, just clue me what to do
Give me the pow'r of man's red flow'r and make my dreams come true


I like your mannerisms, we'll be a set of twins
No one will know where man-cub ends and orangutan begins
And when I eat bananas, I won't peel them with my feet
'Cause I'll become a man-cub and learn some etti - keet.
