I Just Can’t Wait to be King

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!

No one saying do this
ZAZU
Now when I said that–
SIMBA
No one saying be there
ZAZU
What I meant was–
NALA
No one saying stop that
ZAZU
What you don’t realize–
SIMBA
No one saying see here
ZAZU
Now see here!
SIMABA
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

NALA
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

NALA
Everybody look right

Everywhere you look I’m–

BOTH
Standing in the spotlight

ZAZU
Not yet

SIMBA, NALA, CORO
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!

NALA
Oh, he just can’t wait to be king!

SIMBA
Oh, I just can’t wait…

NALA
Just can’t wait

BOTH
To be king!
