Scar is still alive and in exile while Zira is dead (The song may not say, though). But Scar wants to raise his son to be a king and avenge his mother. And the hyena clan, including Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed are with him. But Banzai is also hungry for "cub sandwich".

SCAR: Sleep, my little Kovu

Let your dreams take wing

One day when you're big and strong

You will be a king

KOVU: Good night...

SCAR: Good night, my little prince.

Tomorrow, your training intensifies.

SCAR: I've been exiled, persecuted

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

His daughter squealing in my grasp

His lionesses' mournful cry

That's my lullaby

Now the past I've tried forgetting

And my foes I could forgive

Trouble is, I knows it's petty

But I hate to let them live

BANZAI(Zazu): So you found yourself somebody who'd chase Simba up a tree

SCAR: Oh, the battle may be bloody, but that kind of works for me

The melody of angry growls

A counterpoint of painful howls

A symphony of death, oh my!

That's my lullaby

Zira is (Scar is) gone... but Scar's (Zira's) still around

To love this little lad

Till he learns to be a killer

With a lust for being bad!

BANZAI: Sleep, ya little termite!

Uh-- I mean, precious little thing!

SHENZI: One day when you're big and strong

SCAR: You will be a king!

The pounding of the drums of war

The thrill of Kovu's mighty roar

BANZIA: The joy of vengeance

SHENZI: Testify!

SCAR: I can hear the cheering

SHENZI and BANZAI: Kovu! What a guy!

SCAR: Payback time is nearing

And then our flag will fly

Against a blood-red sky

That's my lullaby!
