(Type the name of your language in the box)




Banzai: Man, that lousy Mufasa! I won't be able to sit for a week!

Ed: {Laughs}
Banzai: It's not funny, Ed.

Ed: {Tries to stop laughing, but bursts out worse}
Banzai: Hey, shut up!

Ed: {Can NOT stop laughing}
Shenzi: Will you knock it off!

Banzai: Well, he started it!

Shenzi: Look at you guys. No wonder we're dangling at the bottom of the food chain.

Banzai: Man, I hate dangling.

Shenzi: Shyeah? You know, if it weren't for those lions, we'd be runnin' the joint.

Banzai: Yeah. Man, I hate lions.

Shenzi: So pushy.

Banzai: And hairy.

Shenzi: And stinky.

Banzai: And man, are they...

Shenzi and Banzai: Uuuugly! {laughter}

Scar: Oh, surely we lions are not all THAT bad.

Banzai: Ohh. Oh, Scar, it's just you.

Shenzi: We were afraid it was somebody important.

Banzai: Yeah, you know, like Mufasa.

Shenzi: Yeah.

Scar: I see.

Banzai: Now that's power.

Shenzi: Tell me about it. I just hear that name and I shudder.

Banzai: Mufasa.

Shenzi: Ooooh. ... Do it again.

Banzai: Mufasa.

Shenzi: Ooooh!

Banzai: Mufasa. Mufasa! Mufasa!

Shenzi: ...Oooh! It tingles me.

Scar: I'm surrounded by idiots.

Banzai: Not you, Scar; I mean, you're one of us. I mean, you're our pal.

Scar: Charmed.

Shenzi: Ohh, I like that. He's not king, but he's still so proper.

Banzai: Yeah. Hey, hey. Did ya bring us anything to eat, Scar, old buddy, old pal? Huh? Did-ya-did-ya-did-ya?

Scar: I don't think you really deserve this. I practically gift-wrapped those cubs for you. And you couldn't even dispose of them.

Shenzi: Well, ya know. It wasn't exactly like they was alone, Scar.

Banzai: Yeah. What are we supposed to do-- kill Mufasa?

Scar: Precisely.

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.

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

Scar: But we're talking kings and successions

Even you can't be caught unawares

Scar: 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

Scar: I know it sounds sordid

But you'll be rewarded

When at last I am given my dues

And injustice deliciously squared

Be prepared!

Banzai: Yeah, Be prepared. Yeah-heh... we'll be prepared, heh. ...For what?

Scar: For the death of the king.

Banzai: Why? Is he sick?

Scar: No, fool - we're going to kill him. Simba too.

Shenzi: Great idea! Who needs a king?

Shenzi (and then Banzai): No king! No king! la-la-la-la-laa-laa!

Scar: Idiots! There will be a king!

Banzai: Hey, but you said, uh...

Scar: I will be king! ...Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again!

Shenzi and Banzai: Yaay! All right! Long live the king!

All Hyenas: Long live the king! Long live the king!

Hyenas: 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

Scar: 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!

Scar: So prepare for the coup of the century
Be prepared for the murkiest scam
(Oooh... La! La! La!)
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!
Livu alaksi!
All (Even Ed): Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared -
Be prepared!
