"I Just Can't Wait to Be King" is a song from The Lion King. It is performed when Simba speaks on how he desires to become king while he and Nala distract Zazu.

Lyrics Edit

Simba:I'm gonna be a mighty king
So enemies, beware

Zazu: Well, I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little...hair

Simba: 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!

Zazu: Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing.

Simba: Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

Zazu: You've rather a long way to go, young master.
If you think...

Simba: No one saying, "Do this"

Zazu: Now when I said that, I--

Nala: No one saying, "Be there"

Zazu: What I meant was--

Simba: No one saying, "Stop that"

Zazu: Look, 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: Well, that's definitely out--

Simba: Free to do it all my way!

[Instrumental]

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!

[Instrumental bridge]

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 and Chorus: 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!
