Lyrics

Timon: (spoken)
Hey, maestro!
What's with that music?
Eesh, something tells me this ain't the floor show.
Ah! Hey, what the...?
Hey there, big fella.
Nice hat!
So, where ya from?
Yikes!
Let's get outta here!

Hyenas:
Hem

Scar:
I know that your powers of potential
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 tip-toeing 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!

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, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
