Now I'm the king of the swingers

And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin' 'round!

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be like you-hoo-hoo
I wanna walk like you
Talk like you, too-oo-oo
You'll see it's true-hoo-hoo
An ape like me-hee-hee
Can learn to be hoo-hoo-human too-hoo-hoo

"All Star" by SmashMouth
Better Lyrics:
Despite all my rage, I'm still just a rat in a cage.
Original Lyrics:
Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an "L" on her forehead
Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
Submitted by: Miles Larsen
