Music by elton john
Lyrics by tim rice
Available on the soundtrack the lion king

Way behind the water hole
A little down the line
The jungle and the plains and peaks
Are scheduled to be mine

Im gonna be the ruler
Of most everything around
From the grandest of the mountains
To the humble common ground
My reign will be a super awesome thing
Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Im gonna be a noble king
Unscrupulously fair
I only need a little time
Perhaps a little hair

Im gonna be the mane event
Like no king was before
Im brushing up on looking down
Im working on my roar
The fauna and the flora gonna swing
Oh, I just can't wait to be king

No one saying do this
No one saying be there
No one saying stop that
No one saying see here
Free to run around all day
Ill be free to do it my way

The time has come as someone said
To talk of many things
This may be true
But I would rather stick to talking kings

Its easy to be royal if you're already leonine
It isn't just my right even my left will be divine
The monarchy is waiting to go zing
Oh I just can't wait to be king
