Be Prepared - John, Elton lyrics

They're cruel and unspeakably brave
But may be they've glimmer of potential
If allied to my vision and brain

I know that your powers of retention
Are as wet as a warthog's backside
But sick as you are, pay attention
My words are a matter of pride
It's clear from your vacant expressions
(Aah, aah, aah, aah)
The lights are not all on upstairs
(Aah, aah, aah, aah)
But we're talking kings and successions
(Aah, aah, aah, aah, aah, aah, aah, aah)
Even you can't be caught unawares
(Hee hee hee hee hee)
So prepare for the chance of a lifetime
Be prepared for sensational news
A shining new era
Is tiptoeing nearer
And where do we feature?
Just listen to Teacher
I know it sounds sordid
But you'll be rewarded
When at last, I am given my dues
And injustice deliciously squared
Be prepared

Yea, be prepared, we'll be prepared
For what?
For the death of the king
Is he sick?
No, fool! We're gonna kill him and Simba too
Great idea! Who needs a king?
(Hee, hee, hee)
No king! No king!
(Hee ha, hee ha, hee hee hee)
La la la la la la
Idiots! There will be a king
Hey, but you said, uh
I will be king! Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again
(Aah, aah, aah, aah)
Yaa! All right! Long live the King
(Aah, aah, aah, aah)
Long live the King! Long live the King
(Aah, aah, aah, aah, aah)

It's great that we'll soon be connected
With a king who'll be all time adored
(Ho ho ho)
Of course, quid pro quo, you're expected
To take certain duties on board
The future is littered with prizes
And though I'm the main addressee
The point that I must emphasize is
You won't get a sniff without me

So prepare for the coup of the century
Be prepared for the murkiest scam
(Ooh, la la la)
Meticulous planning
(We'll have food!)
Tenacity spanning
(Lots of food)
Decades of denial
(We repeat)
Is simply why I'll
(Endless meat)
Be king undisputed
Respected, saluted
And seen for the wonder I am
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
(Aah, aah, aah, aah, aah, aah, aah)
Be prepared
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared

They're cruel and unspeakably brave
But may be they've glimmer of potential
