Lyrics and pictures

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 mane 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 and Nala:
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!

Simba:
Everybody look left
Everybody look right
Everywhere you look I'm...
Standing in the spotlight
Zazu:
Not yet

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

Simba:
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!
