When Kion departs on a journey across the Pride Lands, the Lion Guard is left under Simba's care. Though Ono is nervous at the prospect of being led by Simba, Bunga assures him that there is nothing to worry about. He sings "When You're Running With the King" in order to explain what Simba is like and to assure Ono that the Lion Guard will be in good hands.

Lyrics

Chorus:
You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
Animals bow down before him
Birds flutter and sing

Everyone all over the Pride Lands
Lets you do anything
You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king

Bunga:
Things'll be so great
Hanging with lion number one
We'll live like we're kings
The big old tree of fun
Get our food for free
No need to hunt or run

The only thing to do is
Lie under the sun

Repeat Chorus

Maybe it's the smile or his fabulous shiny mane
Or the way he walks that helps his claim to fame
In the end, it don't matter, it's really all the same
'Cause if the king makes mistakes
He never takes the blame

You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
Animals bow down before him
Birds flutter and sing

Everyone all over the Pride Lands
Lets you do anything
'Cause you know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
