Be Prepared, The Lion King - Disney

84 1 0

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 matter

Of pride

It's clear from your vacant expressions

That 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

Hyenas:

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 is deliciously squared

Be prepared!

Hyenas:

Yeah!

Be prepared, we'll be prepared!

For what?

Scar (I think):

For the death of the king!

Hyenas:

Is he sick?

No, you fool!

We're gonna kill him, and Simba, too.

Great idea!

Who needs a king?

No king, no king!

Scar:

Idiots!

There will be a king!

Hyenas:

But you said-?

Scar:

I will be king!

Stick with me,

And you will never go hungry again!

Hyenas:

Yay, all right!

Long live the king!

Long live the king!

Scar:

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

Aboard

The future is littered with prizes

And though

I'm the main addressee

The point that I emphasize

Is

You won't get a sniff

Without me!

So prepare for the coup

Of century

Be prepared for the murkiest scam

Meticulous planning

Tenacity spanning

Decades of denial

Is simple why I'll

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!
