Lyrics

Zazu:
Everyone in the Pride Lands big or small
Looks forward to whenever you may call
A visit from Your Highness is an honor, yes, it's true!
All your subjects want so much to be with you!
So embrace your position!
The royal tradition
Delighting the Pride Lands with every little thing
In all of the wonderful duties of the king!
You welcome birds from all around
Grant gazelles their grazing ground
Behoove the official turaco whistles
Guard the clearing of pointy thistles
Reside over aardvark wedding rites
Coach the mongooses on their bites
Listen to the zebras' silly pleas
And bless any animal when they sneeze!
So embrace your position!
The royal tradition
Delighting the Pride Lands with every little thing
In all of the wonderful duties of the king!
In all of the wonderful duties of the king!
You set the limits on bushbuck hopping
Judge the hippos' belly-flopping
Considered crocodiles' complaints
And tenderly kiss baby porcupines oh-so-gently
Simba:
Assign all the songbirds to their trees
Advise confused chimpanzees
Ceremonial naming of the bees
Zazu:
Consoling giraffes when they get fleas
Simba:
Actually, that's not much fun...
Zazu:
The fleas do tend to spread
But that said!
So embrace your position
Simba:
The royal tradition!
Zazu:
Delighting the Pride Lands with every little thing
In all of the wonderful
Simba:
In all of the wonderful
Simba & Zazu:
In all of the wonderful
Duties of the king!
In all of the wonderful
Duties of the king!
