The Morning Report
[ZAZU] 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 [MUFASA] [spoken] Yes, yes, Zazu, get on with it! [ZAZU] In order that His Majesty stands sturdy at the helm Aware of all the fauna's latest views [MUFASA] [spoken] Zazu! The morning report! [ZAZU] [spoken] Er - yes, Sire - the morning report Chimps are going ape, firaffes remain above it all Elephants remember, though just what I can't recall Crocodiles are snapping up fresh offers from the banks Showed interes 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 (sung) will be coming back from 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 [MUFASA] [spoken] What are you doing, son? [YOUNG SIMBA] [spoken] Pouncing [MUFASA] [spoken] Let an old pro show you how it's done [ZAZU] [spoken] The buffalo have got a beef About this season's grass Warthogs have been thwarted In attempts to save their gas Flamingoes in the pink Chasing secretary birds Saffron is theis season's color Seen in all the herds Moving down the rank and file To near the bottom rung Far too many beetles are [sung] Quite frankly in the dung Aaaaaaaaak! [MUFASA] Stay low to the ground Shh, not a sound Take it slow One more step Then pounce! [YOUNG SIMBA] Yeah, stay low! 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 [MUFASA AND ZAZU AND YOUNG SIMBA] 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
