Be Prepared

  		F        - 133211 (or the way I was taught was xx3211) 
G7       - 320001 

Intro: Am      Dm 

  Am                         Dm  
I know that your powers of retention  
       Em                     Am 
Are as wet as a warthog's backside. 
                           Dm 
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, 
     Bm7flat5               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 tip-toeing nearer 
       Em          Am 
And where do we feature? 
     Dm        G  
Just listen to teacher. 

  C  
I know it sounds sordid, 
    C/Bflat 
But you'll be rewarded 
        A7                 Dm 
When at last I am given my dues, 
      Bm7flat5             E  
And injustice, deliciously squared, 
Esus E   Am           F 
Be   prepared! 

         E7 
Yeah, be prepared, heh, heh,  
Am 
We'll be prepared, heh. 

For what? 
Dm 
For the death of the king! 
     Em 
Why, is he sick? 
                      Am 
No fools, we're gunna kill him... 

And Simba too... 

Great idea, who needs a king? 
Dm                            Em 
No king, no king, la la la la la la! 
                  Am 
Idiots! There will be a king! 
              Cm 
Hey but you said er-- 

I WILL BE KING! 
Am                 Cm              
Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again! 
Am 
Yay, alright!  
G 
Yeah,alright! 
C 
Alright! 

Long live the king, 
Bm7flat5                    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. 
                                     Dm 
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            G7        C 
The point that I must emphasize is, 
    Bm7flat5                  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        Dm       G 
Meticulous planning, tenacity spanning, 
  Em         Am 
Decades of denial 
   Dm         G 
Is simply why I'll  
   C         
Be king undisputed, 
  C/Bflat 
respected, saluted, 
    A7                    Dm 
And seen for the wonder I am. 
       Bm7flat5                E 
Yes my teeth and ambitions are bared. 
Esus E  Am 
Be   Prepared! 
        Bm7flat5                E 
Yes our teeth and ambitions are bared, 
      Am 
Be prepared!
