I Just Can't Wait to Be King
by Disney



[Simba:] I'm gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware!

[Zazu:] Well I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair

[Simba:] I'm gonna be the main event
Like no king was before
I'm brushing up on looking down
I'm working on my roar

[Zazu:] Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing

[Simba:] Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

[Simba:] No one saying do this
[Nala:] No one saying be there
[Simba:] No one saying stop that
[Nala:] No one saying see here
[Zazu:] Now see here!
[Simba:] Free to run around all day
Free to do it all my way

[Zazu:] I think it's time that you and I
Arranged a heart to heart

[Simba] Kings don't need advice
From little hornbills for a start

[Zazu:] 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

[Simba:] Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Everybody look left
Everybody look right
Everywhere you look I'm
Standing in the spotlight

[Animals:] 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

[Simba:] 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!
