Lyrics

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:
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!

Banzai & Shenzi:
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?

Banzai & Shenzi:
Oh no, it's the lionesses

Scar:
Ah.

Banzai & Shenzi:
You are so adored
Oh, you are so adored

Scar:
That's more like it

Banzai & Shenzi:
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 headaches!

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 grown

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 Pride Lands

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
