“Be Prepared” by Jeremy Irons from The Lion King

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!

So, prepare for the 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!]

[Why? Is he sick?]

[No, fool, we’re gonna 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!]

[Hey, but you said, uh…]

[I will be king! Stick with me, and you’ll never go hungry again!]

[Yay! All right! Long live the king!
Long live the king! Long live the king!]

(King, king, king, king, king, 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 the century
Be prepared for the murkiest scam
(Ooh… la, la, la!)
Meticulous planning
(We’ll have food!)
Tenacity spanning
(Lots of food!)
Decades of denial
(We repeat!)
Is simply why I’ll
(Endless meat!)

Be king, undisputed
Respected, saluted
And seen for the wonder I am!
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

[I never thought hyenas essential
They’re crude and unspeakably plain
But maybe they’ve a glimmer of potential
If allied 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!

So, prepare for the 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!]

[No, fool, we’re gonna kill him. And Simba, too.]

Long live the king! Long live the king!]

(King, king, king, king, king, king!)

And seen for the wonder I am!

Be prepared!

Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

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

[Mufasa’s far too powerful to challenge…]

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-changing
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)
Be prepared
(Be prepared, be prepared, be prepared, be prepared)
Be prepared
(Be prepared, be prepared, be prepared, be prepared)

Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

“Next Time You See Me” by Junior Parker

Next time you see me, things won’t be the same
Next time you see me, things won’t be the same
And if it hurts you my darlin’, you only got yourself to blame

Well it’s a true true sayin’, all that shines is not gold
Well it’s a true true sayin’, all that shines is not gold
and like the good book says you got to reap just what you sow

Well you lied, you cheated, oh-oh for so long
Well you lied, you cheated, oh-oh for so long
You’re a wrong-doing woman and another queen is onyour throne

Next time you see me, things won’t be the same
Next time you see me, things won’t be the same
And if it hurts you my darlin’, you only got yourself to blame

And if it hurts you my darlin’, you only got yourself to blame

And if it hurts you my darlin’, you only got yourself to blame

And if it hurts you my darlin’, you only got yourself to blame

“Roll to Me” by Del Amitri

Look around your world pretty baby
Is it everything you hoped it’d be
The wrong guy, the wrong situation
The right time to roll to me

Roll to me

Look into your heart pretty baby
Is it aching with some nameless need?
Is there something wrong
And you can’t put your finger on it?
Right, then roll to me

And I don’t think I have ever seen
A soul so in despair
So if you want to talk the night through
Guess who will be there?

So don’t try to deny it pretty baby
You’ve been down so long you can hardly see
When the engine’s stalled and it won’t stop raining
It’s the right time to roll to me
Roll to me
Roll to me

And I don’t think I have ever seen
A soul so in despair
So if you want to talk the night through
Guess who will be there?

So,
Look around your world pretty baby
Is it everything you hoped it’d be
The wrong guy, the wrong situation
The right time to roll to me
The right time to roll to me
The right time to roll to me…oooh

“Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House

There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead
Many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re travelling with me

Hey now
Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now
Hey now
When the world comes in
They come
They come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m towing my car
There’s a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
In the paper today
Tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the TV page

Hey now
Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now
Hey now
When the world comes in
They come
They come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again
To the beat of a drum
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead
Barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and release

Hey now
Hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now
Hey now
When the world comes in
They come
They come
To build a wall between us
You know they won’t win

Don’t let them win
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Hey now
Don’t let them win (They come, they come)
Don’t let them win (Hey now, hey now)

“Be A Light” by Thomas Rhett

In a time full of war, be peace
In a time full of doubt, just believe
Yeah, there ain’t that much difference between you and me
In a time full of war, be peace

In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light
(La-la-la, la, la, la, la)

In a place that needs change, make a difference
In a time full of noise, just listen
‘Cause life is but a breeze, better live it
In a place that needs a change, make a difference

In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Oh, don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la

In a race that you can’t win, slow it down
Yeah, you only get one go around
‘Cause the finish line is six feet in the ground
In a race you can’t win, just slow it down

In a world full of hate, be a light (oh)
When you do somebody wrong, make it right (make it right)
Don’t hide in the dark (don’t hide in the dark), you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light

Yeah, it’s hard to live in color, when you just see black and white
In a world full of hate, be a light
