Scar.......Jeremy Irons
Shenzi.......Whoopi Goldberg
[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
          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!

[Hyenas:] Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
          Be prepared!
