The Morning Report Lyrics

Zazu: 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 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

(spoken)
Mufasa: What are you doing, son?
Simba: Pouncin’.
Mufasa: Let an old pro show you how it’s done.

Zazu: Oh, the buffalo have got a beef about the season’s grass
Warthogs have been thwarted in attempts to save their gas
Flamingos in the pink are chasing secretary birds
Saffron is the season’s color seen in all the herds
Moving down the rank and file to near the bottom of the rung
Far too many beetles…

(spoken verse herd when Zazu is singing in the background)
Mufasa: Stay low to the ground.
Simba: Yeah, OK. Stay low to the ground.
Mufasa: Shh… Not a sound.
Take it slow. One more step… then…

Zazu: …are quite frankly in the dung!
Aawwwkk!!!

(Mufasa laughs)

Simba: This is the morning report
Gives you the long and the short
Every grunt, roar, and snort
Not a tale I distort
(muffled) On the morning report!
