Lyrics

  • I know that your powers of retention,
  • Are as wet as a warthog's backside.
  • But thick as you are, pay attention.
  • My words are a matter of pride.


  • It's clear from your vacant expressions,
  • The lights are not all on upstairs.
  • But we're talking kings and successions,
  • Even you can't be caught unawares.


  • So prepare for a chance of a lifetime,
  • Be prepared for sensational news.
  • A shining new era,
  • Is tiptoeing nearer.


  • [Shenzi] (spoken): And where do we feature?
  • [Scar] (spoken): Just listen to teacher.
  • [Scar] (sung): I know it sounds sordid,
  • But you'll be rewarded
  • When at last I am given my dues!
  • And injustice deliciously squared
  • Be prepared!


  • [Hyenas] Yeah, be prepared.
  • We'll be prepared.
  • For what?
  • [Scar] For the death of the king.
  • [Hyenas] Why, is he sick?
  • [Scar] No, fools. We'll kill him. And Simba too!
  • [Hyenas] Great idea! Who needs a king? No king, no king, la la la la la la.
  • [Scar] Idiots! There will be a king!
  • [Hyenas] But you said...
  • [Scar] I will be king. Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again!
  • [Hyenas] Yay! All right!
  • Long live the king!
  • Long live the king!


  • [Hyenas] (sung): It's great that we'll soon be connected,
  • With a king who'll be all-time adored.


  • [Scar]: Of course, quid pro quo, you're expected,
  • To take certain duties on board.
  • The future is littered with prizes,
  • And though I'm the main addressee.
  • The point htat I must emphasize is,
  • You won't get a sniff without me!


  • So prepare for the coup of the centrury,
  • Be prepared for the murkiest scam (Oooh!)
  • Meticulous planning (We'll have food!)
  • Tenacity spanning (Lots of food)
  • Decades of denial (We repeat)
  • Is simply why I'll (Endless meat)
  • Be king undisputed (Aaaaaaah!)
  • Respected, saluted (Aaaaaaah!)
  • And seen for the wonder I am (Aaaaaaah!)


  • Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared,
  • Be prepared!


  • Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared,
  • Be prepared!
