Appearances

The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa

"Stand By Me" is a song originally performed by Ben E. King and written by King, Jerry Leiber, and Mike Stoller, inspired by the spiritual "Lord Stand by Me," plus two lines rooted in Psalms 46:2–3. There have been over 400 recorded versions of the song.

In a music video that aired as part of the 13th episode of The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa, the song is performed by Timon (and three frogs), all the while unfortunate events keep happening to Pumbaa.[1]

Lyrics

Frogs:
(Humming)

Timon:
When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
Oh I won't be afraid, no, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So, Pumbaa, Pumbaa, stand by me
Oh oh oh stand by me
Ooh stand, stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains, they should crumble to the sea
I won't cry

Pumbaa: (spoken)
You won't cry?

Timon:
No, I won't shed a tear

Pumbaa: (spoken)
You won't shed a tear?

Timon:
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So, Pumbaa, Pumbaa, stand by me

Oh oh won't you stand by me
Ooh stand, stand by me, stand by me

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Eeh, I don't think I like this song!

Timon:
So, Pumbaa, Pumbaa, stand by me
Oh oh won't you stand by me
Ooh stand, come on, stand by me, stand by me

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Timon?

Timon: (spoken)
Yes?

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Can I sing the next song?

Timon: (spoken)
Sure, as long as you stand by me!

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Fair enough.

Frogs:
Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me
Oh oh ooh stand by me
I know you need me, stand by me
Oh oh oh oh stand by me
Oooh, heey
