Hush, my little one; you must be exhausted.

Sleep, my little Kovu
Let your dreams take wing
One day when you're big and strong
You will be a king                                        [Hum hum]

Hum hum
Hum hum
Hum hum

I've been exiled, persucuted                         [Hum hum]
Left alone with no defense
When I think of what that brute did
I get a little tense

But I dream a dream so pretty
That I don't feel so depressed
'Cause it soothes my inner kitty
And it helps me get some rest

The sound of Simba's dying gasp                  [Hum hum]
His daughter squealing in my grasp                [Hum hum]
His lionesses' mournful cry                            [Hum]
That's my lullaby

Now the past I've tried forgetting                  [Ooo, ooo...]
And my foes I could forgive                          [Ooo, ooo...]
Trouble is I knows it's petty                          [Ooo, ooo, ooo...]
But I hate to let them live                              [Ooo, ooo, ooo...]

So you found yourself somebody                  [Ooo, ooo...]
Who'd chase Simba up a tree                       [Ooo, ooo...]

Oh, the battle may be bloody                       [Ooo, ooo...]
But that kind of works for me                       [Ooo, ooo, ooo...]

The melody of angry growls                         [Hum hum]
A counterpoint of painful howls                    [Hum hum]
A symphony of death, oh my!                      [Hum hum hum hum]
That's my lullaby                                          [Hum hum hum]

Scar is gone... but Zira's still around             [Ooo, ooo...]
To love this little lad                                     [Ooo...]
Till he learns to be a killer                             [Ooo...]
With a lust for being bad!                             [Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo]

Sleep, ya little termite!                                  [Ooo, ooo...]
Uh-- I mean, precious little thing!                  [Ooo, ooo...]
One day when you're big and strong             [Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo...]
You will be a king!                                       [Ooo, ooo, ooo...]

Hum Hum hum Hum

The pounding of the drums of war                [Hum, hum, hum, hum]
The thrill of Kovu's mighty roar                    [Hum, hum, hum]

The joy of vengeance                                   [Hum, ooo, ooo]
Testify!                                                        [Ooo, ooo...]
I can hear the cheering                                 [Ooo...]
Kovu! What a guy!                                      [...Ooo...]

Payback time is nearing                                [...Ooo...]
And then our flag will fly                               [...Ooo...]
Against a blood-red sky                               [Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo...]
That's my lullaby!                                         [Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo... Hum, hum hum]

Hum hum
Hum hum
