I Just Can't Wait To Be King
The Lion King (Disney)

Lyrics

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 roar!
(Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing.)

Oh, I just can't 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...)
No one saying, "Be there."
(Now, what I meant was...)
No one saying, "Stop that!"
(Now, what you don't realize...)
No one saying, "See here!"
(Now, 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.
Ah! 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!
