Song Info

Relax, Ono! I know Simba pretty well. And you've got nothing to worry about. Let me tell ya what he's like.

Bunga, The Trail to Udugu

Running with the King is a song heard in The Lion Guard episode, The Trail to Udugu.

Bunga sings it to Fuli, Beshte, and Ono as a way to assure them how down to earth and respected Simba is throughout the Pride Lands after they receive the news that he will be temporarily leading the Lion Guard while Nala takes Kion and his sister on a journey.

Lyrics

Bunga:
You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
Animals bow down before him
Birds flutter and sing 
Everyone all over the Pride Lands
Lets you do anything
You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
Things'll be so great
Hanging with lion number one
We'll live like we're kings
The big old tree of fun
Get our food for free
No need to hunt or run
The only thing to do is lie under the sun
You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
Animals bow down before him
Birds flutter and sing
Everyone all over the Pride Lands
Lets you do anything
You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
Maybe it's the smile or his fabulous shiny mane
Or the way he walks that helps his claim to fame
In the end it don't matter, it's really all the same
'Cause if the king makes mistakes he never takes the blame
You know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
Animals bow down before him
Birds flutter and sing
Everyone all over the Pride Lands
Lets you do anything
'Cause you know you're in the presence of greatness
When you're running with the king
