This version of "Be Prepared" is a reprise of the final song heard in The Lion King. It was cut from the film during production, but much like the finalized version, it is sung by Scar and the hyenas. In this version of the song, it is directed at the lionesses as they question Scar's ascension to the throne. Despite being cut from the film, the song is used as a reprise in the stage musical.

Lyrics

Scar:

It's time you were all introduced
To your ruler's executive staff.
Perhaps not the kind you've been used to,
But certainly game for a laugh.

Hyenas:

We'd like to assure you no fooling.
Red meat is no longer our scene,
And if now and then we're seen drooling,
It's only an ancestor's gene!

Scar:

So prepare for a glorious future!
Be prepared for the pride's golden age!

Hyena:

It's like any other
Who murdered a broth-

Hyena:

If we don't spread rumors,
He'll feed us and groom us!

Hyenas:

With friends in high places,
We hold all the aces!

Scar:

So don't try and rattle my cage.

Hyenas:

Oh, imagine if anyone dared!

All:

Be prepared!

Hyenas:

Oh, imagine if anyone dared!

Scar:

Be prepared!
