"Chow Down" is a song from the stage musical. It is sung by Banzai, Ed, and Shenzi as they attempt to eat Simba and Nala after they enter the Elephant Graveyard with Zazu. It is sung primarily as a duet between Shenzi and Banzai, with Ed occasionally vocalizing and laughing in time with the music.

Lyrics

Banzai:
He called us slobbering!

Shenzi:
Said we were mangy!

Banzai:
Did I hear stupid?

Ed:
Huh?

Banzai and Shenzi:
Tell us again, gee

Banzai:
It's so incredible

Shenzi:
That you're so rude

Banzai:
When you're so edible

Banzai and Shenzi:
When you are food!

Banzai:
It's time to chow down

Banzai and Shenzi:
Chow down
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chow down!

Shenzi:
I'm chompin' at the bit, baby!

Banzai:
My stomach's on the growl, son!

Banzai and Shenzi:
Chow down!
Chow down!

Banzai and Shenzi:
You've both been invited on a date
Two courses handed to us on a plate
We'll have you raw, won't be long to wait
Seeing you're already toasty brown!

Banzai and Shenzi:
Chow down!
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chow down!

Banzai:
Your ribs are looking so tasty

Shenzi:
Such chewy little chops, chums

Banzai and Shenzi:
Eat up!

Banzai and Shenzi:
Now wasn't it her mom who ate your dad?
And having parents eaten makes us mad
We're gonna settle up the score a tad
We've never had a snack of such renown!
Chow down!
Chow down!

Ed:
*Maniacal Laughter*

Shenzi: (spoken)
What, Ed? What is it?

Banzai: (spoken)
Hey! Did we order this dinner to go?!

Shenzi: (spoken)
No!

Banzai: (spoken)
Well, there it goes!

Banzai and Shenzi:
I think we should begin the meal from scratch
So many juicy segments to detach
Be good as gold for you're as good as carved!

Shenzi:
Here, kitty kitty

Banzai, Shenzi and Ed:
We're starved!
