Lion King On Broadway - I Just Can't Wait To Be King lyrics

Simba
I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

Zazu
I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair, ha!

Simba
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

Zazu
Thus far a rather uninspiring thing

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

No one saying do this (Zazu: Now when I said that—)

Nala
No one saying be there (Zazu: What I meant was—)

Simba
No one saying stop that (Zazu: What you don't realize—)

Both
No one saying see here (Zazu: Now see here!)
Free to run around all day (Zazu: That's definitely out—)

Simba
Free to do it all my way!

Zazu
I think it's time that you and I arranged a heart-to-heart

Nala
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!

Everybody look left

Nala
Everybody look right

Simba
Everywhere you look I'm—

Both
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
Oh, I just can't wait to be king! (Nala: Oh, he just can't wait to be king!)
Oh, I just can't wait... (Nala: Just can't wait...)

Chorus
To be king!
