The Madness of King Scar
Music by Elton John, lyrics by Tim Rice
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' entrées! 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 headaches! 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? Whatever! 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! Scar Ah, Nala... Your timing couldn't have been more perfect. My how you've grown 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!
