To be king is a huge obligation
It's not just a license for fun
And since you're the next generation
And even more: Since you're my son
I owe you a dad's explanation
That a lifetime of duties begun
But don't get depressed
You get ranked with the best
I'll tell you how, one to one!
To be king is a daunting position
But who gives a hoot if you're hot?
He must uphold both the law and tradition
But the perks make up for a lot!
In short, he's a master tactician
Who must give every subject a shot
From termite to tusk-ah
From dawn until dusk-ah
Mufasa and Zazu:
A king gives it all that he's got!
King and husko, master commando
Ruler of all us all day!
Up in the mountains
Down in the flat lands
My, what a beautiful day!
King, protector, protects us till his duty reconciles!
Nice to all ages
Feasts for all seasons!
Mighty king, of the wild!
