Madness Of King Scar Lyrics

    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

    Hey, boss!

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

    Reggie who?

    Tell me I'm adored
    Please tell me I'm adored

    Hey, boss!

    Oh, what is it?

    We got a bone to pick with you

    There's no food, no water--

    Yeah. It's dinnertime, and there ain't no
    stinkin' entrees!

    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

    I had that once. It was worms

    No, no, no... it's like an itch... deep, persistent, profound...

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

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

    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

    Are you blaming me?

    Oh no, it's the lionesses

    You are so adored
    Oh, you are so adored

    That's more like it

    But what I'd give for one more hit
    Of wildebeest kielbasa
    Or maybe hornbill on the spit...

    Oh, how I miss Mufasa

    Mufasa?! Mufasa?! How dare you! I told you never to mention that name!

    Note taken. I shall never mention "M-m-m" again

    Even in death, his shadow looms over me
    There he is!
    No! There he is!
    And there!

    Calm yourself, Sire, or you'll get another one of your splitting

    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...?

    Oh, pull yourself together, Sire!

    Oh, very well. Zazu? Zazu, Zazu, Zazu...?

    Yes, Sire?

    Nobody loved me, there's the rub, not even as a cub
    What did my brother have that I don't have?

    Do you want the short list or the long?


    Well, he had adoring subjects... a loving family... a devoted queen...

    That's it! I need a queen!

    A what?

    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!


    Ah, Nala... Your timing couldn't have been more perfect. My how you've

    Scar, you have got to do something. We're being forced to overhunt

    She's got those assets feminine

    You're the king. Control the hyenas

    I have to make her mine

    You're destroying the Pridelands

    Nobility in every gene

    If we don't stop now.. Don't you see...

    She has to be my queen

    ...there's still a chance for things to be all right again...

    Come, sweet Nala
    It's written in the stars

    What are you doing? Are you listening to me?

    We'll create a host of little Scars

    What are you talking about?

    Tell me I'm adored

    Get away from me

    Tell me I'm adored
    Oh, Nala... you know how I loathe violence... One way or another, you will
    be mine

    Never, Scar. Never!

    You belong to me
    You all belong to me
