Lion King, film score~I Just Can't Wait to Be King
by Disney



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 brushing up on looking down
I'm working on my RROOAARR

Thus far a rather uninspiring thing

Oh, I just can't wait to be king

You've got a rather long way to go master if you think

No-one saying "do this"
No-one saying "be there"
No-one saying "stop that"
No-one saying "see here"

Free to run around all day
Free to do it all my way

I think it's time that you and I arranged 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 in the spotlight
Not yet
