I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!
I've never seen a king or beast
With quite so little hair

I'm gonna be the main 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!

No one saying do this now when I said that

No one saying be there What I meant was

No one saying stop that what you don't realize

No one saying see here Now see here

Free to run around all day ,

We'll 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 were 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--

Stand in 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!

    I can't wait to sing this song at my school concert! The Lion King is my fav movie, and I'm the best song from the movie! The thing I hate is the colors we have to wear: purple and orange! I'm going with orange because It's better for the song.
