I Just Can't Wait to Be King Lyrics - Lion King

I Just Can't Wait to Be King Lyrics


[YOUNG SIMBA]
I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

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

[YOUNG SIMBA]
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

[ZAZU]
[spoken] Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing

[YOUNG SIMBA]
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

[YOUNG SIMBA]
No one saying do this

[YOUNG NALA]
No one saying be there

[YOUNG SIMBA]
No one saying stop that

[YOUNG NALA AND YOUNG SIMBA]
No one saying see here
Free to run around all day

[ZAZU]
[spoken] Now when I said that --

What I meant was --

What you don't realize --

Now see here!
That's definitely out!

[YOUNG SIMBA]
Free to do it all my way

[ZAZU]
[spoken] I think it's time that you and I arranged a heart-to-heart

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

[ZAZU]
[spoken] 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 [sung] wing

[YOUNG SIMBA]
Oh, I just can't wait to be king
Everybody look left

[YOUNG NALA]
Everybody look right

[YOUNG SIMBA]
Everywhere you look I'm

[YOUNG NALA AND YOUNG SIMBA]
Standing in the spotlight

[ZAZU]
[spoken] Not yet!

[YOUNG NALA, YOUNG SIMBA AND CHORUS]
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

[YOUNG SIMBA]
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

[YOUNG NALA]
Oh, he just can't wait to be king!

[YOUNG SIMBA]
Oh, I just can't wait...

[YOUNG NALA]
Just can't wait...

[YOUNG SIMBA AND YOUNG NALA]
To be king!
