The Morning Report
It's an honor and a privilege, a duty I perform With due sense of decorum and with pride With deference and great respect very much the norm Plus a hint of sycophancy on the side To lay before my ruler all the facts about his realm To fill him in on all the beastly news Yes, yes, Zazu, get on with it In order that His Majesty stands sturdy at the helm Aware of all the fauna's latest views Zazu, the morning report Yes, Sire the morning report Chimps are going ape, giraffes remain above it all Elephants remember, though just what I can't recall Crocodiles are snapping up fresh offers from the banks Showed interest in my nest egg but I quickly said, "No thanks!" We haven't paid the hornbills and the vultures have a hunch Not everyone invited will be coming back for lunch This is the morning report Gives you the long and the short Every grunt, roar, and snort Not a tale I distort On the morning report (What are you doing, son?) (Pouncing) (Ah, let an old pro show you how it's done) The buffalo have got a beef (Stay low) about this season's grass (To the ground) warthogs have been thwarted in attempts to save their gas (Yes, stay low) flamingoes in the pink and (Shh, not a sound) chasing secretary birds Saffron is this season's color Seen in all the heards Moving down the rank and file (take it slow) To near the bottom rung (one more step) Far too many beetles are quite frankly in the dung (then) (Pounce) This is the morning report Gives you the long and the short Every grunt, roar, and snort Not a tale I distort On the morning report This is the morning report Gives you the long and the short Every grunt, roar, and snort Not a tale I distort On the morning report
