Written for my two rambunctious sons around mid-year. One of my favorite songs I've written, and my all-time favorite to sing with them.

Lyrics

Wake up, wake up the sun is shining
No time left to lose
Waiting up since half past five
While you been hittin' snooze

Show me how you brush your teeth and
Help me tie my shoes
Let me drink your coffee 'cause
I wanna be like you

And I say 'slow things down,
Ginger Big Man
Don't waste now,
Be young while you can'

What I wouldn't give to walk in your shoes
See every ray of sun the simple way you do
and you say, 'I want, I wanna be like you
I want, I wanna be like you,'
No, I want, I wanna be like you child,
I wanna be like you

Takin' up my break staring at pictures that you drew
Can't wait to escape this jungle, back home to the zoo

Be my little man cub
And I'll be your big Baloo
Give me your best bear hug
'Cause I wanna be like you

And you say, 'Don't stop now,
I don't want this to end'
Oh, every sun goes down
And rises again

What I wouldn't give to walk in your shoes
See every ray of sun the simple way you do
and you say, 'I want, I wanna be like you
I want, I wanna be like you,'
No, I want, I wanna be like you child,
I wanna be like you

Don't waste now,
Be young while you can'
Oh, every sun goes down
And rises again

What I wouldn't give to walk in your shoes
See every ray of sun the simple way you do
and you say, 'I want, I wanna be like you
I want, I wanna be like you,'
No, I want, I wanna be like you, son,
I wanna be like you
