I Just Can't Wait to Be King [From The Lion King]
by Disney



(When I'm king that'll be the first thing to go./
Not so long as i'm around./
Well in that case you're fired./
Oh, nice try, but only the king can do that./
Well, he's the future king./
Yeah, so you have to do what I tell you./
Not yet I dont, And with an attitude like that Im
afraid you're shaking up to be a pretty
pathetic king indeed./
Huh. Not the way i see it)

I'm gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware-/
Well I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair./
I'm gonna be the main event
Like no king was before
I'm brushin' up on lookin' down
I'm working on my roar!/
Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing.../

Oh i just cant wait to be king!
(/You've rather a long way to go, young master,
if you think-/)

No-one saying do this
(/Now when I said that I-)/
No-one saying be there
(/What I meant was-)/
No-one saying stop that
(/What you dont realise-)/
No-one saying see here
(/Now see here!)
Free to run around all day
(/Well that's definately out/)
Free to do it all my way!/

I think it's time that you and I
Aranged a heart to heart./
Kings don't need advice
From little Hornbills for a start./
If this is where the monarchy
Is headed count me out!
Out of service, out of Africa,
I wouldn't hang about.
This child is getting wildly out of wing.../

Oh i just can't wait to be king!

Everybody look left
Everybody look right
Everywhere you look I'm
Standing spotlight!/Not yet!/
Let every creature go for broke and sing,
Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling!/

Oh I just can't wait to be king!
Oh I just can't wait to be king!
Oh I just can't wait - to be king!

(/I beg your pardon Madam, but GET OFF!
Simba? Nala?)
