Lyrics

Simba:

I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

Zazu:

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

Zazu:

Now when I said that--

Nala:

No one saying be there

Zazu:

What I meant was--

Simba:

No one saying stop that

Zazu:

What you don't realize--

Simba and Nala:

No one saying see here!

Zazu:

Now see here!

Simba:

Free to run around all day

Zazu:

That's definitely out--

Simba:

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

Zazu:

Not yet!

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 and Animals:

Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Oh, I just can't wait...
Just can't wait...
To be king!
