"My Lullaby" is a song featured in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, sung by Zira, Nuka, and Vitani. The song goes over how Zira treats her enemies and her plans for Kovu when he grows up.

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.
(sung) 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 & 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!
