I Just Can't Wait to be King
From Walt Disney's The Lion King
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Tim Rice
                               |1.     |
[Intro] |G  C G |G  D  |G  C G |G  D  :|G  D  |

[Simba] I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!
                    C                                                G
[Zazu]  Well, I've never seen a king of beasts with quite so little hair.

[Simba] I'm gonna be the main event, like no king was before!
            C                                               G
        I'm brushing up I'm looking down. I'm working on my roar!
             Am                 G      D
[Zazu]  Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing.
              C7         D          G    C/G G
[Simba] Oh I just can't wait to be king!
        No one saying 'do this,'    [Zazu: Now when I said that I...]
        No one saying 'be there,'   [What I meant was the...]
                       D/F#        D
        No one saying 'stop that,'  [But what you don't realize...]
        No one saying 'see here.'   [Now see here!]
        C       G    Am    C   D
        Free to run around all day, [Well, that's definitley out.]
        C                 D  D7  G
        Free to do it it all my way!

[Zazu]  I think it's time that you and I arranged a heart to heart.
        C                                   G
[Simba] Kings don't need advice from little hornbills for a start.

[Zazu]  If this is where the monarchy is headed, count me out!
                C                         G  
        Out of service, out of Africa. I wouldn't hang about.
              Am                             D
        This child is getting wildly out of wing!
              C          D          G
[Simba] Oh I just can't wait to be king!

(Instumental: |Ab  Db Ab |Ab  Eb/Ab|Ab  Db/Ab Ab|Ab     |)
                  Db                   Bbm
[Simba] Ev'rybody look left, ev'rybody look right.
                       Eb/G     Eb               Ab
        Ev'rywhere you look, I'm standing in the spotlight.

[Zazu]  Not yet!
            Db    Ab        Bbm     Db       Eb
[Chorus]Let ev'ry creature go for broke and sing.
               Eb       Ab    Bbm       Db    Eb
        Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing.
              Db    Ab/C    Bbm      Db    Eb
        It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling.
              Db         Eb         Ab
[Simba] Oh I just can't wait to be king.
              Db         Eb         Ab
        Oh I just can't wait to be king.
              Db         Eb         Ab
        Oh I just can't wait to be king.
