Usage Information

That's All I Need is a song from The Lion King 1½ sung by Timon who wishes to have more in life than dig tunnels while on sentry duty for his colony.

Lyrics

Timon:
There's more to life than panic
And bein' some other guy's snack
I may be delicious, organic
But this little entrée's fighting back

I'm gonna put diggin' tunnels behind me
And live at a new altitude
I'm gonna reach for the stars to remind me
That meerkats are not merely food!

For once I'll be
Looking out for me
Yeah!

I'll tell you what I want
This kat is moving on
Where he's a bon vivant
who's missing out on bon
I'd be a bigger cheese
far from the desert scene
A little cooling breeze
A little patch of green
And I'll be snoozing in my hammock
By a rippling stream
Many miles from any tunnels
And the digging team
Looking after number one
Will be my only creed
That's all I need
That's all I need

I've always been good at running away
But now I'm gonna run the show
I've always been seen as the ultimate prey
But now my status ain't so quo
A dream sublime
It's Hyena ti---!

Trivia

  • A longer version of the song appears on the film's soundtrack.
