I'm gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware
Well, 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
You've rather a long way to go
Young master, if you think

No one saying, "Do this"
Now when I said that, I
No one saying, "Be there"
What I meant was

No one saying, "Stop that"
Look, what you don't realize
No one saying, "See here"
Now see here

Free to run around all day
Well, 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
Standin' 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, I just can't wait to be king
Oh, I just can't wait to be king
