"Tonight We Strike" is a song composed by Beau Black for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. It was released on January 8, 2016, as part of the film's soundtrack. It is sung by Janja, Mzingo, Cheezi, Chungu, and various hyenas as they plot to take over the Pride Lands.

Lyrics

Janja:
When you live in the Outlands
It's better to make your own rules
Ask anyone outside the Pride Lands
The Circle of Life is for fools!

Hyenas:
Ha ha ha ha ha ha, ha!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha, ha!

Janja:
We go where we want when we want to
And we eat, yes, we eat as we please
That Kion can't give us a curfew

Mzingo:
Or tell us to stay in the trees!

Hyenas:
No!

Chorus:
Tonight, we strike!
Tonight, we strike!
No one's safe, so the time is right
The Circle of Life's gonna feel our bite
Tonight, we strike!
Tonight, we strike!

Hyenas:
Ha ha ha ha ha ha, ha!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha, ha!

Janja:
So before this new guard is ready
To defend the Pride Lands from harm
We'll make them all feel unsteady
We'll give them cause for alarm!

Hyenas:
Yeah!

Repeat Chorus

Janja: (spoken)
All right, fellas, bring it in.
Here's the plan.

Janja:
While the animals are in their slumber
We'll be creeping beneath
And just like a roaring thunder
We'll wake them up with our teeth!

Hyenas:
Repeat Chorus Twice

All:
The Circle of Life's gonna feel our bite
Tonight, we strike!
Tonight, we strike!
