That's All I Need

Lyrics from The Lion King 1 1/2


There's more to life than panic
And bein' some other guy's snack, ugh!
I may be delicious, organic
But this little entree's fightin' back

I'm gonna put diggin' tunnels behind me
And live at a new altitude
I'm gonna reach for the stars to remind me
That meerkats are not merely food!

For once I'll be
Lookin' out for me

I'll tell you what I want
This 'kat is moving on
Where he's a bon-vivant
Who's missin' out on bon
I'd be a bigger cheese
Far from the desert scene
A little cooling breeze
A little patch of green

And I'll be snoozin' in my hammock
By a rippling stream
Many miles from any tunnel
And the digging team
Lookin' after number one
Will be my only creed

That's all I need
That's all I need!

I've always been good at runnin' away
Well, now I'm gonna run the show
I've always been seen as the ultimate prey
But now my status ain't so quo!

A dream sublime
It's hyena ti -
