Be Prepared

Intro Am 

 I never thought hyenas essential 
Em                    Am 
 They're crude and unspeakably plain 
Am                   Dm 
 But maybe they've a glimmer of potential 
F                      E  
 If allied to my vision and brain 

( Am  Dm ) 

  Am                          Dm 
I know that your powers of retention 
       Em                     Am 
Are as wet as a warthog's backside 
But thick as you are, pay attention 
   Em                    Am 
My words are a matter of pride 
     Cm                       Am 
It's clear from your vacant expressions 
    Cm                        Am 
The lights are not all on upstairs 
    G                          C 
But we're talking kings and successions 
     Bm7(5-)                E7 
Even you can't be caught unawares 

      Am                       Dm 
So prepare for the chance of a lifetime 
      G                     C 
Be prepared for sensational news 
  Em          Am     Dm        G 
A shining new era is tiptoeing nearer 
     Em          Am 
(And where do we feature?) 
     Dm        G 
Just listen to teacher 

I know it sounds sordid 
But you'll be rewarded 
        A7                 Dm 
When at last I am given my dues 
      Bm7(5-)               E 
And injustice deliciously squared 
E4   E Am     F 
Be  prepared! 

(Yeah, be prepared! 
Am                     Dm 
We'll be prepared... for what?) 

(For the death of the king!) 
(Why? Is he sick?) 
(No, fool, we're gonna kill him 

And Simba too!) 
(Great idea! Who needs a king?) 
(No king, No king, nah nah nah nah nah nah!) 
(Idiots! There will be a king!) 

(Hey, but you said that...) 

(I'll be king! 
Am             Cm 
 Stick with me, and you'll 
Never go hungry again!) 
G             C  
Yea! Alright! Long live the king! 
Bm7(5-)             E 
Long live the king! 

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

Of course, quid pro quo, you're expected 
   Em                     Am 
To take certain duties on board 

    Cm                      Am 
The future is littered with prizes 
    Cm                       Am 
And though I'm the main addressee 
    G                      C 
The point that I must emphasize is 
    Bm7(5-)                    E 
You won't get a sniff without me 

      Am                       Dm 
So prepare for the coup of the century 
      G                       C 
Be prepared for the murkiest scam 

  Em       Am 
Meticulous planning 
  Dm       G 
Tenacity spanning 
  Em         Am 
Decades of denial 
   Dm         G 
Is simply why I'll 

Be king undisputed 
Respected, saluted 
    A7                    Dm 
And seen for the wonder I am 
        Bm7(5-)                 E 
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared 
E4  E  Am 
Be  prepared! 
         Bm7(5-)                 E 
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared 
      Am     F  E  Am 
Be prepared!
