Lyrics

Banzai:

He called us slobbering!

Shenzi:

Said we were mangy!

Banzai:

Did I hear stupid?

Ed:

Huh?

Shenzi & Banzai:

Tell us again-- gee
It's so incredible

Shenzi:

That you're so rude

Banzai:

When you're so edible

Shenzi & Banzai:

When you are food!

Banzai:

It's time to chow down

Shenzi & Banzai:

Chow down!
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chow down

Shenzi:

I'm chompin' at the bit, baby

Banzai:

My stomach's on the growl, son

Shenzi & Banzai:

Chow down!
Chow down!
You both been invited on a date
Two courses handed to us on a plate
We'll have you raw, won't be long to wait
Seeing you're already brown
Chow down!
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chow down!

Banzai:

Your ribs are looking so tasty

Shenzi:

Such chewy little chops, chums

Shenzi & Banzai:

Eat up!

Shenzi:

Now wasn't it her mom who ate your dad?

Shenzi & Banzai:

And having parents eaten makes us mad

Banzai:

We're gonna settle up the score a tad

Shenzi & Banzai:

We've never had a snack of such renown
Chow down!
Chow down!

Ed:

Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-

Shenzi:

What, Ed? What is it?

Banzai:

Hey, did we order this dinner to go?

Shenzi:

No

Banzai:

Well, there it goes!

Shenzi & Banzai:

I think we should begin the meal from scratch
So many juicy segments to detach
Be good as gold for you're as good as carved

Shenzi:

Here, kitty kitty...

Shenzi & Banzai:

We're starved!
