Circle Of Life

Can You Feel The Love Tonight


Circle of Life
Chorus

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life



I Just Can't Wait to Be King
Simba, Zazu & Nala

Simba
I'm gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware!

Zazu
Well I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair

Simba
I'm gonna be the mane event
Like no king was before
I'm brushing up on looking down
I'm working on my roar

Zazu
Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing

Simba
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

Simba
No one saying do this

Nala
No one saying be there

Simba
No one saying stop that

Nala
No one saying see here

Zazu
Now see here!

Simba
Free to run around all day
Free to do it all my way

Zazu
I think it's time that you and I
Arranged a heart to heart

Simba
Kings don't need advice
From little hornbills for a start

Zazu
If this is where the monarchy is headed
Count me out
Out of service, out of Africa
I wouldn't hang about
This child is getting wildly out of wing

Simba
Oh, I just can't wait to be king

Everybody look left
Everybody look right
Everywhere you look I'm
Standing in the spotlight

Animals
Let every creature go for broke and sing
Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling

Simba
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!



Be Prepared
Scar, Shenzi, & Hyenas

Scar
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 a chance of a lifetime
Be prepared for sensational news
A shining new era
Is tiptoeing nearer

Shenzi
And where do we feature?

Scar
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!

Hyena
Be prepared for what?

Scar
For the death of the king!

Hyena
Why? Is he sick?

Scar
No, you fool, we're going to kill him... and Simba too!

Hyena
Great idea! Who needs a king?

Hyenas
No king, No king, nah nah nah nah nah nah!

Scar
Idiots! There will BE a king!

Hyena
But you just said...

Scar
I will be king!
Stick with me, and you'll never be hungry again!

Hyenas
YEA!!!!!! Long live the king!

It's great that we'll soon be connected
With a king who'll be all-time adored

Scar
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

Hyenas
(Ooooh!)

Scar
Meticulous planning

Hyenas
(We'll have food!)

Scar
Tenacity spanning

Hyenas
(Lots of food)

Scar
Decades of denial

Hyenas
(We repeat)

Scar
Is simply why I'll

Hyenas
(Endless meat)

Scar
Be king undisputed

Hyenas
(Aaaaaaaaaah!)

Scar
respected, saluted

Hyenas
(Aaaaaaaaaah!)

Scar
And seen for the wonder I am

Hyenas
(Aaaaaaaaaah!)

Scar
Yes my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

Hyenas
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!



Hakuna Matata
Timon, Pumba & Simba

Timon
Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase

Pumba
Hakuna Matata!
Ain't no passing craze

Timon
It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

When he was a young warthog

Pumba
When I was a young warthog

Timon
He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal
He could clear the savannah after ev'ry meal

Pumba
I'm a sensitive soul though I seem thick-skinned
And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind

And, oh, the shame
Thought-a changin' my name
And I got downhearted
Ev'rytime that I...

Timon
Hey, not in front of the Kids

Pumba
Oh, sorry

Both
Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata!
Ain't no passing craze

Simba
It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy

All
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna...it means no worries
For the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy



Can You Feel The Love Tonight?
Timon, Pumba, Simba, Nala & Chorus

Timon
I can see what's happ'ning

Pumba
What?

Timon
And they don't have a clue!

Pumba
Who?

Timon
They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line
Our trio's down to two

Pumba
Oh!

Timon
The sweet caress of twilight
There's magic in the air
And with all this romantic atmosphere
Disaster's in the air

Chorus
Can you feel the love tonight?
The peace the evening brings
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things

Simba
So many things to tell her
But how to make her see
The truth about my past? Impossible!
She'd turn away from me

Nala
He's holding back, he's hiding
But what, I can't decide
Why won't he be the king I know he is
The king I see inside?

Chorus
Can you feel the love tonight?
You needn't look too far
Stealing through the night's uncertainties
Love is where they are

Timon
And if he falls in love tonight
It can be assumed
His carefree days with us are history
In short, our pal is doomed






In support of all those living with autism.
