I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware! I've never seen a king of beasts With quite so little hair I'm gonna be the mane 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! No one saying do this Now when I said that-- No one saying be there What I meant was-- No one saying stop that What you don't realize-- No one saying see here Now see here! Free to run around all day That's definitely out-- 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 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, he just can't wait to be king! Oh, I just can't wait... Just can't wait To be king!
