The Lyrics

This song is dedicated to The Lion King from Walt Disney. Requested by Alexander Josh Garcia the Zoboomafoo GoAnimator. Apologies if this was done before. If it wasn't, that's alright.
[Verse 1: Simba]
I used to be the king,
Rafiki would hold me up on the ring.
Now I live with my dad, Mufasa,
Which our kingdom once had saw.
I used to be the brave,
Found my dad which I once hadn't saved.
Listen to what Scar would say,
"Now your father is dead. Long live the king."
One minute, I cried sadly,
Cause I was so lonely.
And I discovered that my father's dead,
From not a herd of hyenas, but a wildebeest instead.

I hear The Circle of Life calling,
Pride Rock was the place where I've fallen,
See my light, and my kingdom here.
The animals cheer when the lion appears.
For some reason, I remember when,
Scar saved my dad but he was dead,
There was never a Lion King,
But that was when I became the king.

[Verse 2]
I end up with Pumbaa and Timon,
They find me cute, when I was all alone.
Got away from that terrible thing,
But I don't wanna talk about it or anything,
Hakuna Matata played...
What a wonderful phrase they made,
I'm just a young cub who never learns those things,
But I just couldn't wait to be king.

[Chorus 2]
Hakuna Matata was still playing,
Me, Pumbaa and Timon, were singing.
Pumbaa, he was a young warthog,
He cleared the savannah, but not the log.
For some reason, I grew up quick,
No worries for the rest of my tricks.
Scar was the only king,
When I was ready to be king.
I hear the herd coming back again,
Rafiki, he knows the way, my friend.
He saw my light, and my kingdom here.
The animals cheered because I appeared.
For some reason, Scar was the king,
Until I came here and took his ring.
Now that I've learned these things,
I've always wanted to be King.

Nice! Lion King is my favorite Disney animated film. So glad to see you branching out in the topics. keep it up! (I see you also did "Donuts" but as I Dont Know The Original Song, I will approach it another day after a YouTube viewing...)

@Agrimorfee: Call it a DeviantArt viewing, cause I have a DeviantArt account called JoeyHensonStudios there, and you might want to sign up to DeviantArt for that. I don't feel like making "Donuts" on my YouTube channel there because it would be lazy and I'd be too busy in my life doing other things.
