Lyrics Be Prepared

I never thought hyenas essential
They're crude and unspeakably plain
But maybe they've a glimmer of potential
If aligned 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
Be be be be
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, ah ah
Yeah we'll be prepared hey
For what?
For the death of the king
No, fool, we gonna kill him and Simba too
Why? Is he sick?
Great idea
Who needs a king?
No king, no king lah lah lah lah lah lah
Idiots, there will be a king
I will be king
Hey but you said huh
Stick with me and you'll never
Go hungry again
Yeah all right
Long live the king
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
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
Me me me
Say hey
So prepare for the coup of the century
Be prepared for the murkiest scam
Meticulous planning tenacity spanning
We'll have food lots of food decades of denial
We repeat
Is simply why I'll be king undisputed endless meat
Respected saluted and seen for the wonder that I am
Yes my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared
Yes our teeth
Yes our teeth and ambitions are bared and ambitions are bared
Be prepared
Be prepared
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
