Be Prepared (From "The Lion King Original Broadway Cast Recording") Lyrics

Be Prepared (准备就绪) (《狮子王》音乐剧插曲) - The Lion King Ensemble/Stanley Wayne Mathis/Kevin Cahoon

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 warthogs 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

Is he sick

No fool We're going to kill him and Simba too

Great idea Who needs a king

No king no king

 

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

 

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 tenacity spanning

Decades of denial is simply 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 our teeth and ambitions are bared

 

Be prepared
