Be Prepared

SCAR
I never thought hyenas essential
They’re crude and unspeakably plain
But maybe they’ve a glimmer of potential
If allied to my vision and brain

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
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
Yeah! Be prepared. We’ll be prepared! For what?

SCAR
For the death of the king

BANZAI
Is he sick?

SCAR
No, fool! We’re going to kill him. And Simba, too

SHENZI
Great idea! Who needs a king?

LE IENE
No king, no king! La la la la la!

SCAR
Idiots! There will be a king!

SHENZI
But you said…

SCAR
I will be king! Stick with me and you’ll never go hungry again!

LE IENE
Yay, all right! 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

LE IENE
Oooooo, la-la-la!

SCAR
Meticulous planning

LE IENE
We’ll have food!

SCAR
Tenacity spanning

LE IENE
Lots of food

SCAR
Decades of denial

LE IENE
We repeat

SCAR
Is simply why I’ll

LE IENE
Endless meat

SCAR
Be king undisputed
Respected, saluted
And seen for the wonder I am
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

LE IENE
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared –
Be prepared!
