"My Lullaby" is a song from The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. It is sung by Zira, Nuka, and Vitani as Zira plans to raise Kovu to kill Simba and take over the Pride Lands.

Lyrics

Zira:
Sleep, my little Kovu
Let your dreams take wing
One day when you're big and strong
You will be a king

Kovu: (spoken)
Good night.

Zira: (spoken)
Good night, my little prince.
Tomorrow, your training intensifies.

Zira:
I've been exiled, persecuted
Left alone with no defense
When I think of what that brute did
I get a little tense

But I dream a dream so pretty
That I don't feel so depressed
'Cause it soothes my inner kitty
And it helps me get some rest

The sound of Simba's dying gasp
His daughter squealing in my grasp
His lionesses' mournful cry
That's my lullaby!

Now the past I've tried forgetting
And my foes I could forgive
Trouble is, I knows it's petty
But I hate to let them live!

Nuka:
So you found yourself somebody
Who'd chase Simba up a tree

Zira:
Oh, the battle may be bloody
But that kind of works for me

The melody of angry growls
A counterpoint of painful howls
A symphony of death, oh my!
That's my lullaby!

Scar is gone, but Zira's still around
To love this little lad
Till he learns to be a killer
With a lust for being bad!

Nuka:
Sleep, ya little termite
Uh, I mean, precious little thing

Vitani:
One day, when you're big and strong

Zira:
You will be a king!

The pounding of the drums of war
The thrill of Kovu's mighty roar!

Nuka:
The joy of vengeance!

Vitani:
Testify!

Zira:
I can hear the cheering!

Nuka and Vitani:
Kovu! What a guy!

Zira:
Payback time is nearing
And then our flag will fly
Against a blood-red sky
That's my lullaby!
