(C) ???? Walt Disney Music Company


(Zazu)   It's an honor and a privilege, a duty I perform
         With due sense of decorum and with pride
         With deference and great respect very much the norm
         Plus a hint of sycophancy on the side
         To lay before my ruler all the facts about his realm
         To fill him in on all the beastly news

(Mufasa) Yes, yes, Zazu, get on with it!

(Zazu)   In order that His Majesty stands sturdy at the helm
         Aware of all the fauna's latest views

(Mufasa) Zazu! The morning report!

(Zazu)   Er-- yes, Sire-- the morning report

         Chimps are going ape, giraffes remain above it all
         Elephants remember, though just what I can't recall
         Crocodiles are snapping up fresh offers from the banks
         Showed interest in my nest egg but I quickly said "No thanks!"
         We haven't paid the hornbills and the vultures have a hunch
         Not everyone invited will be coming back for lunch

         This is the morning report
         Gives you the long and the short
         Every grunt, roar, and snort
         Not a tale I distort
         On the morning report

(Mufasa) What are you doing, son?

(Simba)  Pouncing

(Mufasa) Let and old pro show you how it's done

(Zazu)   The buffalo have got a beef
         About this season's grass       (Mufasa) Stay low to the ground
         Warthogs have been thwarted
         In attempts to save their gas
         Flamingoes in the pink and      (Simba)  Yeah, stay low!
         Chasing secretary birds
         Saffron is this season's color
         Seen in all the herds           (Mufasa) Shh, not a sound
         Moving down the rank and file            Take it slow
         To near the bottom rung                  One more step
         Far too many beetles are
         Quite frankly in the dung                Then pounce!
         Aaaaaak!

(Simba)  This is the morning report
         Gives you the long and the short
         Every grunt, roar, and snort
         Not a tale I distort
         On the morning report

(All)    This is the morning report
         Gives you the long and the short
         Every grunt, roar, and snort
         Not a tale I distort
         On the morning report
