Yes, this is an unfortunate duty. But you have so many other wonderful ones, sire, if I may say so.

Zazu to Simba, Can't Wait to be Queen

Duties of the King is a song featured in the episode Can't Wait to be Queen.

It is sung by Simba and Zazu, who tries to assure Simba that his position as Ruler of the Pride Lands is one to be proud of.

Lyrics

Zazu:
Everyone in the Pride Lands big or small
Looks forward to whenever you may call 
A visit from Your Highness is an honor, yes, it's true!
All your subjects want so much to be with you!
So embrace your position!
The royal tradition
Delighting the Pride Lands with every little thing
In all of the wonderful duties of the king!
You welcome birds from all around
Grant gazelles their grazing ground
Behoove the official turaco whistles
Guard the clearing of pointy thistles
Reside over aardvark wedding rites
Coach the mongooses on their bites
Listen to the zebras' silly pleas
And bless any animal when they sneeze!
So embrace your position!
The royal tradition
Delighting the Pride Lands with every little thing
In all of the wonderful duties of the king!
In all of the wonderful duties of the king!
You set the limits on bushbuck hopping
Judge the hippos' belly-flopping
Consider crocodiles' complaints
And tenderly kiss baby porcupines, oh, so gently
Simba:
Assign all the songbirds to their trees
Advise confused chimpanzees
Ceremonial mating of the bees
Zazu:
Consoling giraffes when they get fleas
Simba:
Actually, that's not much fun...
Zazu:
The fleas do tend to spread
But that said!
So embrace your position
Simba:
The royal tradition!
Zazu:
Delighting the Pride Lands with every little thing
In all of the wonderful
Simba:
In all of the wonderful
Simba & Zazu:
In all of the wonderful
Duties of the king!
In all of the wonderful
Duties of the king!
