Most of the children know their parts for the year 4/5 production. There are still a few parts to be confirmed as I adjust the script slightly.
On Monday I will confirm all parts with the children and send home some information/suggestions for their costumes.
In the meantime, I have given the children a copy of the lyrics for the song which corresponds with our part in the performance. We will be singing ‘I Just Can’t Wait To Be King!’ Please could the children practise this song over the weekend if they have an opportunity to do so.
Here is the video we have been using today to help us:
Here are the 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 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! (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 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!
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!
