The Lyrics

I've often wondered what to do with this song, then it struck me that the answer has been staring me in the face: what would happen if Scar joined the Boy Scouts? Obviously, before long he'd be wanting to take over and subvert...
[Scar (spoken)]
I always thought Akela deficient
He's crude, and no good at his job
When I'm in, we'll be so efficient
No more dib dib dib! dob bloody dob

[Scar:]
You know we need big contributions
We're in debt - we all must provide
So I'm thinking: sex, prostitution
With some gambling and drugs on the side

It's clear that with imagination
We'll have a most profitable time
The Scouts is the organization
To organize "organized" crime

So prepare for a big change of lifestyle
Be prepared for a criminal ruse
There's no need to fear our
Own criminal era
[Shenzi:]
And where do we feature?
[Scar:]
Just listen to teacher
Who cares that it's sordid
We'll all be rewarded
When the punters are giving our dues
From corruption, no one will be spared
Be prepared!

[Spoken]
[Banzai:] Yeah, Be prepared.
Yeah-heh... we'll be prepared, heh.
...For what?
[Scar:] For the breakdown of law and order
[Banzai:] Does it need a shrink?
[Scar:] No, fool-- we're going to buy the cops, judges too
[Shenzi:] Great idea! Who needs laws?
[Shenzi (and then Banzai):]
Smoking! ***king! la--la-la--la-laa-laa!

[Scar:] Idiots! You will be working!
[Banzai:] Hey, but you said, uh...
[Scar:] You'll be *EARNING*! ...Stick with me, and you'll not be broke ever again!
[Shenzi and Banzai:] Yaay! All right! Paid for ***king!
[All Hyenas:] Paid for ***king! Paid for ***king!

[Full song again]
[Scouts:]
It's great that we'll be rich as Croesus
There'll be nothing that we can't afford
[Scar:] Of course, quid pro quo, there's some pieces
Of meat that you must take on board

The future is littered with condoms
And also with coke, meth and E
We won't act like Hugh Grant in "rom-com"s
I see myself more... Quentin T.

So prepare for the sodding rear-entry
(Oooh!)
Be prepared for the murkiest scam
(Oooh... La! La! La!)
we're plundering booty
(We'll take drugs!)
Out of promiscu'ty
(Lots of drugs)
Be making a pile
(Indiscrete)
It ain't any trial
(Sold as meat)
Being prostituted
(Aaaaaaah...)
Inspected.. and stupid
(...aaaaaaah...)
Obscene, but I don't give a damn
(...aaaaaaah!)
Yes, your cheeky, pert buttocks are bared
(Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo)
Be prepared!

[All:]
Yes, our cheeky, pert buttocks are bared
We're prepared!

The only part of the Lion King I've seen was the video clip for this song, so I'm missing out of most of the humor. Perverting a Disney tune is always good though...

(SOTM) Waayyy too much of the original's words to give high marks here.

Oops... can't believe I didn't spot this - it's not my final version: the "Where do we feature/Just listen to teacher" lines should have been "But what if they jail our/Insidious Akela/When I get to court, it/Don't matter: I bought it"; there's a few other minor changes, too. Prat.
Sorry, guys...

I would have like to have seen more referances to Boy Scouts than organized crime, but it wasn't bad.

(SOTM) you had me at "No more dib dib dib! dob bloody dob" Phil, and I could just hear Jeremy Irons singing this - something sick about those Boy Scouts alright (them and Catholic priests) - and I'm glad to see someone else know about Akela, allowing me the shameless plug:

(SOTM) Ay-yi-yi. . .If Scar would turn the Boy Scouts into underage prostitutes, it's a good thing he's not in charge of the boy scouts. Very insane, very unusual, and even though some of the lines were left in tact, I still thought it was overall pretty good, though the pacing in the beginning left me a little lost at times.

SOTM- Lovely little twisted take on a Disney tune. You earned you parody-writing badge on this one, Phil.
