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
Yeah. Be Prepared.
We'll be prepared
For the death of the king
Is he sick?
We are going to kill him...and Simba too.
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!)
(We'll have food!)
(Lot's of food!)
Decades of denial
Is simply why I'll
Be king undisputed
And be seen for the wonder I am
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
