First you're hit with the POWERFUL opening lyrics, which we totally butchered trying to sing along as kids.

For the record, it's "Nants ingonyama bagithi baba / Sithi uhm ingonyama." Don't forget it! And in case you were wondering (we know you were) it means "Here comes a lion, Father / Oh yes, it's a lion."

Because next up, there's the soundtrack's resident BANGER, "I Just Can't Wait To Be King", aka the anthem of goal diggers EVERYWHERE:

Of course, we can't forget the song that terrified an entire generation, Scar's "Be Prepared":
