I Just Can't Wait To Be King


The Lion King (獅子王 電影原聲帶Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

JD McCrary, Shahadi Wright Joseph, John Oliver



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 main event
Like no king was before
I'm brushing up on looking down
Working on my roar!
Whoa, thus far a rather uninspiring thing
Oh I just can't wait to be king
You have a rather long way to go, young master, if you think—

No one saying, "Do this"
Now when I said that—
No one saying "Be there"
What I meant was—
No one saying, "Stop that"
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, Simba
Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Everybody look left
Everybody look right
Everywhere you look, I'm standing in the spotlight (Not yet!)
Let every creature go for broke and sing
Let's hear it in the herd, on the wing
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling
Oh, I just can't wait to be king
Oh, he just can't wait to be king
Oh, I just can't wait (Just can't wait)
To be king
