|The Madness of King Scar (deleted)|
|“||Simba: How you did end up here?|
Nala: Scar banished me.
Nala: Oh, Scar, he's a tyrant! He never should've been king. You should've been king.
This version of "The Madness of King Scar" was set to appear in the film, but it never made it to the big screen because it was "creepy" and "took too long." It wasn't truly deleted, but simply moved to the stage version of the film.
|It's tough at the top|
|I deserve a companion, a mate|
|Who will start my cylinder's firing with fervor|
|And you, my sweet thing, fit the part!|
|A king alone is a sad situation indeed|
|But a king without heirs?|
|Now that's a tragedy...|
|You can't be serious.|
|I've never been more serious|
|Be prepared for a stunning proposal|
|That power and beauty should bond|
|Which cannot but fail to ensure cries of hail to|
|The chief and his consort, the sine qua non sort|
|Of ruling ascendance, our line of descendants|
|Will flow through the pride and beyond!|
- The title of this song was inspired by the name of a 1991 play, The Madness of King George.
