Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!
Verse 2
I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Thus far a rather uninspiring thing
Verse 5
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Verse 6
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 (That's definitely out)
Free to do it all my way!
Verse 7
I think it's time that you and I
Arranged a heart-to-heart
Verse 8
Kings don't need advice
From little hornbills for a start
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Everybody look left
Verse 11
Everybody look right
Verse 12
Everywhere you look I'm
Verse 13
Standing in the spotlight
Verse 14
Not yet
Verse 15
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
Verse 16
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Verse 17
Oh, he just can't wait to be king!
Verse 18
Oh, I just can't wait
Verse 19
Just can't wait
Verse 20
To be king!
