Be Prepared - Jeremy Irons

I know that your powers of retention

Are as wet as a warthog's backside

But think 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 are going to kill him...and Simba too.

Great idea!

Who needs a king?

No king, no king, la la la la la la

Idiots! There will be a king.

But you said...

I will be king!

Stick with me and you'll never go hungry again!

Yeah, all right!

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 a century

Be prepared for the murkiest scam

(OOOOOO, la la la!)

Meticulous planning

(We'll have food!)

Tenacity planning

(Lot's of food!)

Decades of denial

(We repeat)

Is simply why I'll

(Endless meat

Be king undisputed


Respected, saluted


And be seen for the wonder I am


Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared

Be prepared!

Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared

Be prepared!
