  • Way behind the water hole
    A little down the line
    The jungle and the plains and peaks
    Are scheduled to be mine

    I'm gonna be the ruler
    Of most everything around
    From the grandest of the mountains
    To the humble common ground

    My reign will be a super awesome thing
    Oh, I just can't wait to be king

    I'm gonna be a noble king
    Unscrupulously fair
    I only need a little time
    Perhaps a little hair

    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

    The fauna and the flora gonna swing
    Oh, I just can't wait to be king

    No one saying do this
    No one saying be there
    No one saying stop that
    No one saying see here
    Free to run around all day
    I'll be free to do it my way

    No one saying do this
    No one saying be there
    No one saying stop that
    No one saying see here
    Free to run around all day
    Free to do it my way

    The time has come as someone said
    To talk of many things
    It may be true
    But I would rather stick to talking kings

    It's easy to be royal
    If you're already leonine
    It isn't just my right
    Even my left will be divine

    The monarchy is waiting to go zing
    Oh, I just can't wait to be king
    Oh, I just can't wait to be king
