Lyrics

Announcer: (spoken)
Ladies and gentlemen
Boys and girls
It's time to clap your paws, stomp your hooves, and ruffle your feathers
As we welcome you to the Festival of The Lion King
Let the procession begin

Chorus:
Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Timon: (spoken)
Hiya, folks
How ya doin'?
Don't worry, your old buddy Timon is here
The show can begin
Hey, what are ya doin'?
Slow down! Slow down!
I'm supposed to be center stage!
Who's drivin' this thing?

Chorus:
Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Hello? Hello?
Look at me!
I'm in a parade!
Hey, tumble monkeys
Walk me over by the warthog section

Chorus:
Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Simba: (spoken)
Hi, everybody
Hey, Pumbaa, Timon
Am I in the right section?
Yep, it's the lion section, all right
Hey, guys!
Looks like we're all here
Let's go!

Chorus:
Let every creature go for broke and sing
(Sing)
Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing
(On the wing)
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling
(His finest fling)
Oh, I just can't wait
To be king
