Be Prepared

Lyrics from The Lion King (Live-Action)

Scar

[Scar:] Mufasa has always shown too much restraint when it comes to hunting. When I am king, the mighty will be free to take whatever they want, because a hyena's belly is never full.

[Shenzi:] Mufasa's far too powerful to challenge

[Scar:] Mufasa is yesterday's message
A clapped-out, distracted regime
Whose failings undoubtedly presage
The need for a different dream
Yes, leonine times are a-changin'
Which means that hyenas' must too
My vision is clear and wide-ranging
And even encompasses you

So prepare for the coup of the century
Prepare 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

Be prepared, be prepared
(Be prepared, be prepared...)
Be prepared
(Be prepared, be prepared...)
Be prepared
(Be prepared, be prepared...)

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