Madness of king scar

Lyrics

Scar[speaking] Zazu, why am I not loved?
[singing] 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[speaking] Hey, boss!

Scar[singing] When my name is whispered through the pride
Is this talk of love or regicide?

Shenzi[speaking]: Reggie who?

Scar[singing] Tell me I'm adored
Please tell me I'm adored

Banzai[speaking] Hey, boss!

Scar
[speaking] Oh, what is it?

Banzai
[speaking] We got a bone to pick with you.

Shenzi
[speaking] There's no food, no water--

Banzai
[speaking] Yeah. It's dinnertime, and there ain't no stinkin' entrées!

Scar
[speaking] Oh, 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
[speaking] I had that once... It was worms.

Scar
[speaking] No, no, no. It's like an itch: deep... persistent... profound.

Banzai
[speaking] That's it-- worms! When they get really bad all you gotta do is... hunker down and scoot.

Scar
[speaking] Thanks for the tip. Ingrates! If it weren't for me you'd be beating off buzzards for your next bite!

Shenzi & Banzai
[singing] 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
[speaking] Are you blaming me?!

Shenzi & Banzai
[speaking] Oh no, it's the lionesses.
[singing] You are so adored
Oh, you are so adored

Scar
[speaking] That's more like it!

Shenzi & Banzai
[singing] But what I'd give for one more hit
Of wildebeest kielbasa
Or maybe hornbill on the spit...

Zazu
[speaking] Oh, how I miss Mufasa!

Scar
[speaking] Mufasa?! Mufasa?! How dare you! I told you never to mention that name!

Zazu
[speaking] Note taken. I shall never mention "Mm-mm-mm" again

Scar
[speaking] Even in death, his shadow looms over me...&nbsp There he is! No! There he is! And there!

Zazu
[speaking] Calm yourself, Sire, or you'll get another one of your splitting headaches!

Scar
[speaking] I am perfectly fine!
[singing] 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
[speaking] Oh, pull yourself together, Sire!

Scar
[speaking] Oh, very well. Zazu? Zazu, Zazu, Zazu...?

Zazu
[speaking] Yes, Sire?

Scar
[speaking] Nobody loved me, there's the rub, not even as a cub.&nbsp What did my brother have that I don't have?

Zazu
[speaking] Do you want the short list or the long?

Scar
[speaking] Whatever!

Zazu
[speaking] Well, he had adoring subjects... a loving family... a devoted queen...

Scar
[speaking] That's it! I need a queen!

Zazu
[speaking] A what?

Scar
[speaking] 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
[speaking] Scar.

Scar
[speaking] Ah, Nala... Your timing couldn't have been more perfect. My how you've grown

Nala
[speaking] Scar, you have got to do something. We're being forced to over-hunt!

Scar
[singing] She's got those assets feminine

Nala
[speaking] You're the king. Control the hyenas.

Scar
[singing] I have to make her mine

Nala
[speaking] You're destroying the Pridelands.

Scar
[singing] Nobility in every gene

Nala
[speaking] If we stop now... Don't you see...

Scar
[singing] She has to be my queen

Nala
[speaking] ...there's still a chance for things to be all right again.

Scar
[singing] Come, sweet Nala It's written in the stars

Nala
[speaking] Wa-wait... What are you doing? Are you listening to me?

Scar
[singing] We'll create a host of little Scars

Nala
[speaking] What are you talking about?

Scar
[singing] Tell me I'm adored

Nala
[speaking] Get away from me...!

Scar
[singing] Tell me I'm adored
[Nala scratches Scar]
[speaking] Oh, Nala... you know how I loathe violence... One way or another, you will be mine.

Nala
[speaking] Never, Scar. Never!

Scar
[singing] You belong to me
You all belong to me
