The Lyrics

One day, Simba, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new ki- wait, where are you going?
Heads up, your crown's crowned

Heir (heir) one day (one day)
Bummer (bummer, bummer, bummer)? That sounds off
Heir, heir, heir, heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir, heir (will be you, sonny), heir, heir (let's go)

Lord of us all, kinda heavy
To put on you but it's alright, not right now, though you're ready (ready)
Need to wait for my will (hey, hey)
That's for when I die, even if it looks iffy
Like your uncle put poison in my ear, kingdom's yours, made a decree (decree, uh)
You're the one with the skill (okay)
Since you first could talk to me (hey)
Got the best teachers to teach all you should know (you'd learn how)
Oh-oh (you'd learn how), oh-oh
To not rule so cruelly (so cruelly)
The divine right to rule on you, I bestow
Hang on, where did you go (I don't know)?
Was it somethin' I said?

Heir (heir)
You're the one I (hey) chose to be the king, see (hey, oh)
Heir (heir)
Since you're the one son who's not a prick, see (what, what)
Heir (heir)
Need a non-jerk to assume the throne, why'd you leave (hey, hey)?
Heir (heir)
How'd this shock you (yeah)? Your whole life built to this moment
Heir, heir, heir, heir, heir, heir (what, what)
Heir, heir, heir, heir, heir, heir (what, what)

Sure you'll show the crown respect now
Never think that war's a super awesome idea just because you're peeved (you're peeved)
You're a big fan of peace, huge fan of peace now (where'd you go?)
Not sure why you'd run away now (now, yeah)
10 million subjects will follow the path you lead
That's not that many (hey)
You can't have cold feet, it will look bad
If you don't wanna lead
Just gotta make all the rules in the land
And hope the councils agree (hey, hey, hey)
So many egos for one heir (oh) to wrangle easily
I'm sure you'll find the knack soon-ish, my heir
Still don't get why you're eager to leave (where'd you go? Come on, come back)
Eyebrow's raised

Heir (heir)
Now you're fully grown, it's your destiny (hey, hey)
Heir (heir)
Once I bite the dust, it'll be your duty (what, what, uh)
Heir (heir)
You've shown your worth, by not being really douchey (hey, hey)
Heir (heir)
Burden's on you, don't get why you run while freakin'
Heir, heir, heir, heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir, heir, heir, heir (hey, hey, you're on)

Dumbfounded, just seems ridiculous
That you balk at this, not ambiguous
You growled, a long string of angry vowels (ah)
Sorry, but I can't let you throw in any towel (yeah)
Other children I've raised are all lazy fools (slobs)
They've run off to hot islands so just keep your cool (yeah, yeah)
And ditch all the whingin' you're givin', it's nonsense, you know
Bein' royalty straight rocks, near nothin' blows, I
Love the paparazzi that flow
Into my gardens 'cause I turn on the garden hose (love that flow, ow)
Really love this crown
Without death, my reign's years would go into the thousands
Smart kid, you'll do this with ease (yeah)
All of this will come so easily (yeah)
When I find which door you're behind, you'll get (hey)
A chance to earn the monarchy, drop the reluctance then explain

Heir (heir)
Son, when I was your age, I burst with glee (hey, hey)
Heir (heir)
When my papa said the next king would be me (what, what)
Heir (heir)
And it all worked great, so your resistance stumps me (hey, hey)
Heir (heir)
I'm so confused why you threaten country leavin'
Heir, heir, heir, heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir, heir, heir, heir

Gobsmacked that you would say that
Try it out for a bit before you say it blows
Gobsmacked you would say that
Be top of the world, just see how it goes
Gobsmacked you would say that
Anyone would kill for this and some have done so
Gobsmacked you would say that
Say the monarchy's shit? Could change it all, you know

I am this close to parodying every Billboard Year-End #1 song for he past 18 years. Just waiting for an excuse to parody Daniel Powter's "Bad Day". And by "excuse" I mean "waiting for Todd in the Shadows to cover him on One Hit Wonderland".
