[Scar:] 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? [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 deliciously squared Be prepared! [Hyena:?] Be prepared for what? [Scar:] For the death of the king! [Hyena:?] Why? Is he sick? [Scar:] No, you fool, we're going to kill him... and Simba too! [Hyena:?] Great idea! Who needs a king? [Hyenas:] No king, No king, nah nah nah nah nah nah! [Scar:] Idiots! There will BE a king! [Hyena:?] But you just said... [Scar:] *I* will be king! Stick with me, and you'll never be hungry again! [Hyenas:] YEA!!!!!! 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 (Ooooh!) 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 (Aaaaaaaaaah!) respected, saluted (Aaaaaaaaaah!) And seen for the wonder I am (Aaaaaaaaaah!) Yes my teeth and ambitions are bared Be prepared! [Hyenas:] Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared Be prepared!
