"Yeah, he's a mess. (SIGHS) He's kind of my mess, though."

Mwenzi, Ono the Tickbird

Tickbirds and Rhinos is a song heard in The Lion Guard episode Ono the Tickbird.

It is sung three times throughout the episode, first by Kifaru as he reminisces of the days that he and Mwenzi shared. Mwenzi sings it later on as he reminisces of the days that he and Kifaru shared. Towards the end, one brief finale is sung by the pair as they are brought back together.


Kifaru's Version

Tickbirds and rhi-i-i-inos
Were always a pair
Together we go-o-o-o-o everywhere
He's always guiding me along
Cleaning all the pesky bugs right off of my back
Tickbirds and rhi-i-i-inos
Were always a pair

Mwenzi's Version

Tickbirds and rhi-i-i-inos
Were always a pair
Together we go-o-o-o-o everywhere
Takin' me for a ride
While I eat all those bugs right off his back
Tickbirds and rhi-i-i-inos
Were always a pair

Duet Version

And rhi-i-i-inos
We're always a pair
