Just Can't Wait To Be King

(Written as a possible ending to the Third Sketch where Gordon Brown enters to chastise Harry as the others wrap up.)

Original Lyrics

I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so 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

Thus far a rather uninspiring thing

Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

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!

I think it's time that you and I
Arranged a heart-to-heart

Kings don't need advice
From little hornbills for a start

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

Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Everybody look left

Everybody look right

Everywhere you look I'm--

Standing in the spotlight

Not yet

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

Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

Oh, he just can't wait to be king!

Oh, I just can't wait...

Just can't wait

To be king!




New Lyrics

HARRY: I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

GORDON: I've never seen a king of men
GORDON: Who called himself Führer

HARRY: I'm gonna be the main event
HARRY: Like no king was before
HARRY: I'm brushing up on wearing crowns
HARRY: I'm gonna be hardcore

GORDON: I can't believe you are wearing that thing

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

HARRY: No one saying do this            GORDON: Now when I said that--
CURIOUS: No one saying be there        GORDON: What I meant was--
HARRY: No one saying stop that        GORDON: What you don't realize--
BOTH: No one saying see here        GORDON: Now see here!
HARRY: Free to run around all day    GORDON: You do that now!
HARRY: Free to do it all my way!

GORDON: I think it's time that you and I
GORDON: Had a chat with Grandma

CURIOUS: Try it if you'd like
CURIOUS: But you aren't going to get far

GORDON: If this is where the monarchy is headed
GORDON: Count me out
GORDON: Out of service, out of Parliament
GORDON: I wouldn't hang about
GORDON: This plot is getting wildly out of wing

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

HARRY: Everybody look left

CURIOUS: Everybody look right

HARRY: Everywhere you look I'm--

BOTH: Standing in the spotlight

GORDON: Tabloids don't count!

CHORUS: Let every Nazi go for broke and sing
CHORUS: Let's see it in papers and on TV
CHORUS: It's gonna be King Harry's finest fling

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

CURIOUS: Oh, he just can't wait to be king!

HARRY: Oh, I just can't wait...

CURIOUS: Just can't wait

ALL: To be king!
