(Scar)             Zazu, why am I not loved?
                   I am that rare and awesome thing
                   I'm every inch a king
                   Yet I feel a twinge of doubt
                   As I go walk about

(Banzai)           Hey, boss!

(Scar)             When my name is whispered through the pride
                   Is this talk of love or regicide?

(Shenzi)           Reggie who?

(Scar)             Tell me I'm adored
                   Please tell me I'm adored

(Banzai)           Hey, boss!

(Scar)             Oh, what is it?

(Banzai)           We got a bone to pick with you

(Shenzi)           There's no food, no water--

(Banzai)           Yeah. It's dinnertime, and there ain't no
                   stinkin' entrées!

(Scar)             Oh, you and your petty complaints. You don't know what real hunger is. 
                   Day after day it gnaws at the very core of my being

(Banzai)           I had that once. It was worms

(Scar)             No, no, no... it's like an itch... deep, persistent, profound...

(Banzai)           That's it-- worms! When they get really bad all you gotta do is... hunker
                   down and scoot

(Scar)             Thanks for the tip. Ingrates! If it weren't for me you'd be beating off
                   buzzards for your next bite! 

(Shenzi and Banzai) Yeah, you're our savior, thanks a bunch
                    But how about some lunch?
                    It doesn't matter if it's fresh
                    I need a fix of flesh
                    My bones have moved to where they've never been
                    They are on the outside looking in

(Scar)              Are you blaming me?

(Shenzi and Banzai) Oh no, it's the lionesses

                    You are so adored
                    Oh, you are so adored

(Scar)              That's more like it

(Shenzi and Banzai) But what I'd give for one more hit
                    Of wildebeest kielbasa
                    Or maybe hornbill on the spit...

(Zazu)              Oh, how I miss Mufasa

(Scar)              Mufasa?! Mufasa?! How dare you! I told you never to mention that name!

(Zazu)              Note taken. I shall never mention "M-m-m" again

(Scar)              Even in death, his shadow looms over me
                    There he is!
                    No! There he is!
                    And there!

(Zazu)              Calm yourself, Sire, or you'll get another one of your splitting

(Scar)              I am perfectly fine!
                    I'm better than Mufasa was
                    I'm revered
                    I am reviled
                    I'm idolized
                    I am despised
                    I'm keeping calm
                    I'm going wild!

                    I tell myself I'm fine
                    Yes I am, no you're not
                    Yes I am, no you're not
                    I tell myself I'm fine

                    No you're not, yes I am, no you're not
                    Yes I am
                    No you're not
                    Yes, no, yes, no, who am I talking to...?

(Zazu)              Oh, pull yourself together, Sire!

(Scar)              Oh, very well. Zazu? Zazu, Zazu, Zazu...?

(Zazu)              Yes, Sire?

(Scar)              Nobody loved me, there's the rub, not even as a cub
                    What did my brother have that I don't have?

(Zazu)              Do you want the short list or the long?

(Scar)              Whatever!

(Zazu)              Well, he had adoring subjects... a loving family... a devoted queen... 

(Scar)              That's it! I need a queen!

(Zazu)              A what?

(Scar)              A queen, man! A queen! Without a queen, what am I? A dead end, no line, no
                    descendants, no future. With a queen, I'll have cubs... Immortality will
                    be mine! Immortality will be mine!

(Nala)              Scar

(Scar)              Ah, Nala... Your timing couldn't have been more perfect. My how you've

(Nala)              Scar, you have got to do something. We're being forced to overhunt

(Scar)              She's got those assets feminine

(Nala)              You're the king. Control the hyenas

(Scar)              I have to make her mine

(Nala)              You're destroying the Pridelands

(Scar)              Nobility in every gene

(Nala)              If we don't stop now.. Don't you see...

(Scar)              She has to be my queen

(Nala)              ...there's still a chance for things to be all right again... 

(Scar)              Come, sweet Nala
                    It's written in the stars

(Nala)              What are you doing? Are you listening to me?

(Scar)              We'll create a host of little Scars

(Nala)              What are you talking about?

(Scar)              Tell me I'm adored

(Nala)              Get away from me

(Scar)              Tell me I'm adored
                    Oh, Nala... you know how I loathe violence... One way or another, you will
                    be mine

(Nala)              Never, Scar. Never!

(Scar)              You belong to me
                    You all belong to me
