THE LION KING “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” by Martin (8) and Miriam (5)

Lion King is one of our kids favorites! Miriam (5 years old) plays the role of Nala and Martin (8 years old) is young Simba. They watched the movies so many times in both Russian and English, they know the songs by heart and sing them everywhere they go! Martin’s favorite “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” came to life thanks to his dad who sang Zazu’s lines (originally our beloved Rowan Atkinson) and his mom who recorded the chorus vocals at the end.
Filmed by mom and dad at Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park and South West California in the mountains.

Martin and Miriam are brother and sister. They are talented in many areas. They both study violin, piano, ballet, hip hop and jazz dance, speak Russian and English, acting. At the moment we stopped in Los Angeles, CA, after traveling for over 2 years throughout the USA. They are homeschooled and pursuing acting careers.

Lyrics “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King”

I’m gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware
Well, I’ve never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair
I’m gonna be the main 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
You’ve rather a long way to go, young master, if you think-
No one saying, “do this”
Now when I said that, I
No one saying, “be there”
What I meant was
No one saying, “stop that”
Look, what you don’t realize
No one saying, “see here”
Now see here!
Free to run around all day
Well, 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 horn-bills 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
Standin’ 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, I just can’t wait to be king
Oh, I just can’t wait to be king
