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.


The time has come as someone said to talk of many things.
This 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.

Repeat: Oh, I just can't wait to be king. Oh - oh. Oh - oh.
