Cue Sheet


Four ladies promenade, go walkin' on around that ring
Get back swing your man, swing it with the Lion King
Join hands and circle to the left go 'round the floor
Allemande that corner girl, weave the ring with a lion roar
*Everybody look left, everybody look right
Everywhere you look I'm standing in the spotlight
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling
Oh, I just can't wait to be King

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade go halfway 'round that floor
Down the middle star thru, same girl California twirl
Swing thru the outside pair and spin the top for me
Without a stop go right & left thru and turn you see
Star thru, eight chain two you do
Box the gnat with the corner,
swing and then you all promenade
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling
Oh, I just can't wait to be King

*No more saying "do this", no more saying "be there"
No more saying "stop that", no more saying "see here"
Free to run around all day, free to do it all my way

I Just Can't Wait To Be King Lyrics ID: 1564

(Simba:) I'm gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware!

(Zazu:) Well, I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair

(Simba:) 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

(Zazu:) Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing

(Simba:) Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

(Zazu:) You've rather a long way to go, young master, if you think...

(Simba:) No one saying "do this!"
(Zazu:) Now when I said that, I --
(Nala:) No one saying "be there!"
(Zazu:) What I meant was...
(Simba:) No one saying "stop that!"
(Zazu:) Look, what you don't realize...
(Simba and Nala:) No one saying "see here!"
(Zazu:) Now see here!

(Nala:) Free to run around all day
(Zazu:) Well, that's definitely out...
(Simba:) Free to do it all my way!

(Zazu:) I think it's time that you and I
Arranged a heart to heart

(Nala:) Kings don't need advice
From little hornbills for a start

(Zazu:) 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

(Simba:) Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

Everybody look left
Everybody look right
Everywhere you look I'm
Standing in the spotlight!

(Zazu:) 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, I just can't wait to be king!
Oh, I just can't waaaaaait ... to be king!

Lyrics by Music by Elton John, lyrics by Tim Rice.
Recorded by Jason Weaver, Laura Williams, and Rowan Atkinson.
