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 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
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!
Yeah! Be prepared. We'll be prepared! For what?
For the death of the king

No, fool! We're going to kill him. And Simba, too
Great idea! Who needs a king?
No king, no king! La la la la la!
Idiots! There will be a king!
But you said...
I will be king! Stick with me and you'll never go hungry again!
Yay, all right! Long live the king! Long live the king!
It's great that we'll soon be connected With a king who'll be all-time adored

Tenacity spanningLots of food Decades of denialWe repeat Is simply why I'llEndless meat Be king undisputed Respected, saluted And seen for the wonder I am Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared Be prepared!
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared - Be prepared!
