Be Prepared

Be Prepared is a song sung by Scar and Shenzi's Clan.

Lyrics

Scar:
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 the chance of a lifetime
Be prepared for sensational news
A shining new era
Is tiptoeing nearer
Shenzi:
And where do we feature?

Scar:
Just listen to teacher
I know it sounds sordid
But you'll be rewarded
When at last I am given my dues
And injustice deliciously squared
Be prepared!

Banzai: (spoken)
Yeah! Be prepared!
Yeah-heh! We'll be prepared! Heh!
For what?

Scar: (spoken)
For the death of the king.

Banzai: (spoken)
Why? Is he sick?

Scar: (spoken)
No, fool. We're gonna kill him.
And Simba, too.

Shenzi: (spoken)
Great idea!
Who needs a king?

Banzai and Shenzi:
No king! No king!
La, la, la, la, la, la!

Scar: (spoken)
Idiots!
There will be a king!

Banzai: (spoken)
Hey, but you said-

Scar: (spoken)
I will be king!
Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again!

Banzai and Shenzi: (spoken)
Yay! All right! All right!
Long live the king!

Hyenas: (spoken)
Long live the king!
Long live the king!
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 that I must emphasize is
You won't get a sniff without me!
So prepare for the coup of the century
Be prepared for the murkiest scam
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
Respected, saluted
And seen for the wonder I am!
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

All:
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

Can You Feel the Love Tonight

"Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is a song from The Lion King. It is sung by Nala, Pumbaa, Simba, and Timon after Simba and Nala reunite as young adults.

Lyrics

Timon:
I can see what's happening

Pumbaa: (spoken)
What?

Timon:
And they don't have a clue

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Who?

Timon:
They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line
Our trio's down to two

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Oh.

Timon:
Ze sweet caress of twilight
There's magic everywhere
And with all this romantic atmosphere
Disaster's in the air

Chorus:
Can you feel the love tonight
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
The peace the evening brings
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
With all its living things
(Lalela lelando/lelandu we) Hey, listen to this history!

Simba:
So many things to tell her
But how to make her see
The truth about my past? Impossible!
She'd turn away from me

Nala:
He's holding back, he's hiding
But what, I can't decide
Why won't he be the king I know he is
The king I see inside

(Repeat Chorus)

Can you feel the love tonight
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
You needn't look too far
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
Stealing through the night's uncertainties
Love is where they are

Timon:
And if he falls in love tonight
It can be assumed...

Pumbaa:
His carefree days with us are history

Timon and Pumbaa:
In short, our pal is doomed


Circle of Life

"Circle of Life" is the opening song from The Lion King.

Lyrics

Lebo M:
Nants ingonyama bagithi baba Here comes a lion, Father
Sithi uhm ingonyama Oh, yes, it's a lion
Ingonyama A lion

Nants ingonyama bagithi baba
Sithi uhhmm ingonyama
Ingonyama

Siyo nqoba We're going to conquer
Ingonyama

Chant:
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala The royal lion wears his leopard spots
(Repeat)

Carmen Twillie:
From the day we arrive on the planet
And, blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life

Lyrics

Timon:
Hakuna Matata
What a wonderful phrase

Philosophy
Hakuna Matata

Instrumental Break

Timon:
Why, when he was a young warthog

Pumbaa:
When I was a young warthog!

Timon: (spoken)
Very nice.

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Thanks!

Timon:
He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal
He could clear the savanna after every meal

Pumbaa:
I'm a sensitive soul, though I seem thick-skinned
And it hurt, that my friends never stood downwind!
And, oh, the shame!

Timon:
He was ashamed!

Pumbaa:
Thought of changin' my name!

Timon:
Oh, what's in a name?

Pumbaa:
And I got downhearted!

Timon:
How did you feel?

Pumbaa:
Every time that I-

Timon: (spoken)
Hey, Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids.

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Oh, sorry.

Both:
Hakuna Matata
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata
Ain't no passing craze!

Simba:
It means no worries
For the rest of your days

Timon:
Yeah, sing it, kid!

Simba and Timon:
It's our problem-free...

Pumbaa:
Philosophy...

All:
Hakuna Matata!

I Just Can't Wait to be King

"I Just Can't Wait to be King" is a song from The Lion King. It is sung by Simba, Nala, and Zazu.

Lyrics

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 main event
Like no king was before
I'm brushin' up on lookin' down
I'm workin' 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 sayin' do this!
Zazu:
Now when I said that...
Nala:
No one sayin' be there!
Zazu:
What I meant was...
Simba:
No one sayin' stop that!
Zazu:
What you don't realize...
Simba and Nala:
No one sayin' see here!
Zazu:
Now see here!
Simba:
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
Simba:
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...
Standin' in the spotlight!
Zazu:
Not yet!
Choir:
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!
Simba:
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!

He Lives In You

He Lives in You is a song herd during Kiara's Presentation.
