|If You Ever Come Back We'll Kill You|
June 24, 2014
"If You Ever Come Back We'll Kill You" is a musical piece composed by Hans Zimmer for The Lion King. It is the underscore that plays during Scar's speech to the pride and Simba's collapse in the desert.
"If You Ever Come Back We'll Kill You" was initially released under the title "As Good As Dead (Part 1)" on the complete film score. However, the album was retracted after one day. On June 24, 2014, The Legacy Collection: The Lion King was released, with "As Good As Dead (Part 1)" having been remixed and titled "If You Ever Come Back We'll Kill You".
The score picks up at the start of Scar's speech, during which he gives his condolences to the grief-shaken pride, and concludes with the upbeat musical theme heard as Timon and Pumbaa chase away the vultures encircling Simba's fallen body.
Though this score is not a part of the original cast recording, it can be heard during the musical itself in the same sequence of events as its film counterpart. The score was slightly altered, particularly during the scene in which vultures circle Simba's body. Officially, the score is titled "Bowling for Buzzards".
- The first section of the score uses a similar arrangement heard in the beginning of "Father's Footsteps". It is later reused in both "Nala & Simba" and "Simba & Nala Move In - King Of The Priderock".
