Be Prepared

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


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
And where do we feature?

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)
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.

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!

Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!
