    Lion King Be Prepared

    Script:

    Be Prepared by The Lion King
    [Scar:]
    I never thought hyenas essential
    They're crude and unspeakably plain
    But maybe they've a glimmer of potential
    If allied to my vision and brain

    [Scar]
    I know that your powers of retention
    Are as wet as a warthog's backside
    But thick as you are, pay attention
    My words are a matter of pride
    It's clear from your vacant expressions
    The lights are not all on upstairs
    But we're talking kings and successions
    Even you can't be caught unawares
    So prepare for a chance of a lifetime
    Be prepared for sensational news
    A shining new era
    Is tiptoeing nearer
    [Shenzi:]
    And where do we feature?
    [Scar:]
    Just listen to teacher
    I know it sounds sordid
    But you'll be rewarded
    When at last I am given my dues
    And injustice deliciously squared
    Be prepared!
    [Spoken]
    [Banzai:] Yeah, Be prepared.
    Yeah-heh... we'll be prepared, heh.
    ...For what?
    [Scar:] For the death of the king.
    [Banzai:] Why? Is he sick?
    [Scar:] No, fool-- we're going to kill him. And Simba too.
    [Shenzi:] Great idea! Who needs a king?
    [Shenzi (and then Banzai):]
    No king! No king! la--la-la--la-laa-laa!
    [Scar:] Idiots! There will be a king!
    [Banzai:] Hey, but you said, uh...
    [Scar:] I will be king! ...Stick with me, and
    you'll never go hungry again!
    [Shenzi and Banzai:] Yaay! All right! Long live the king!
    [All Hyenas:] Long live the king! Long live the king!
    [Full song again]
    [Hyenas: {In tight, crisp phrasing and diction}]
    It's great that we'll soon be connected.
    With a king who'll be all-time adored.
    [Scar:] Of course, quid pro quo, you're expected
    To take certain duties on board
    The future is littered with prizes
    And though I'm the main addressee
    The point that I must emphasize is
    You won't get a sniff without me!
    So prepare for the coup of the century
    (Oooh!)
    Be prepared for the murkiest scam
    (Oooh... La! La! La!)
    Meticulous planning
    (We'll have food!)
    Tenacity spanning
    (Lots of food)
    Decades of denial
    (We repeat)
    Is simply why I'll
    (Endless meat)
    Be king undisputed
    (Aaaaaaah...)
    Respected, saluted
    (...aaaaaaah...)
    And seen for the wonder I am
    (...aaaaaaah!)
    Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
    (Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo)
    Be prepared!
    [All:]
    Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
    Be prepared!

    I only did the Scar part. The other voices are filled into the song from their original artist. Fun song to do overall! I felt a much better control in timing and tempo with this recording then the last song I did.

    Peer Feedback:

    I loved the pacing & emotion. Great job!

    Peer Feedback:

    The recording was very clear as well.

    Peer Feedback:

    The recording quality sounded crisp and clean to me. I don't know if you sang all of the other roles, but if you did, you managed to stay focused and make the characters each have a distinctive sound. You did a great job.

    Peer Feedback:

    GREAT JOB! LOVED IT!

    Peer Feedback:

    Many Blessings,
    Carol

    Peer Feedback:

    A bit of an echo, though despite that, beautiful! Your interpretation of Scar was spot on! The voice was very similar and you definitely kept the dark yet convincing tone that the song holds, overall pulling together a wonderful performance.

    Peer Feedback:

    Sounds just like her. Or do you mean "Opera"? ;-)

    Peer Feedback:

    More interesting than the 'fluffy' read. Shows some skill. Keep at it.

    Peer Feedback:

    I find your scripts quite strange and they don't really give you the opportunity to show off what you can do. Maybe take a paragraph from 'Alice in Wonderland' that contains different characters speaking (and with different intentions that you need to convey) and try out your voices? I think that having a script that has some meaning will help your acting skills and will develop your characters. Hope that helps? Niki

    The Case of the Cursed Dodo

    Script:

    We FADE IN on the Sahara Desert. It's sizzling hot. Sand dunes stretch off in the distance like waves on a huge ocean. A small figure cuts a path across the desolate landscape. As the figure gets closer, we see that he's cloaked from head to toe in traditional Bedouin garb. Every step is a struggle against the harsh desert wind. But strangely, this figure is not walking. He's hopping. Two short ears stick out the top of his head wrap. He stops abruptly, spotting something half-buried in the sand in front of him. It's a tattered and weathered suitcase. The figure loosens his headscarf, revealing the puzzled furry face of a hispid hare, a rare bunny from the Himalayas. He looks out through thick spectacles. His nose wiggles wildly, sniffing the air for danger. The hare cautiously wipes away the layers of sand covering the suitcase, exposing a number of brightly-colored luggage stickers. Suddenly, his nose stops wiggling. His small eyes fix on one of the decals. It's the image of a hotel silhouetted against a jungle backdrop. Across the bottom it reads, "WILDLIFE'S LAST RESORT." The Sahara winds seem to rise up and swirl around the hare as he lifts the suitcase from its desert grave. The noise of the blowing sand grows to a crescendo as we CUT TO BLACK.

    You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch

    Script:

    You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
    You really are a heel.
    You're as cuddly as a cactus,
    You're as charming as an eel,
    Mr. Grinch.
    You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel.

    You're a monster, Mr. Grinch.
    Your heart's an empty hole.
    Your brain is full of spiders.
    You've got garlic in your soul, Mr Grinch.
    I wouldn't touch you with a
    Thirty-nine and a half foot pole.

    You're a vile one, Mr. Grinch.
    You have termites in your smile,
    You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile,
    Mr Grinch.
    Given the choice between the two of you,
    I'd take the seasick crocodile.

    You're a rotter Mr Grinch
    You're the king of sinful sots
    Your hearts a dead tomato squashed with moldy purple spots
    Mr Grinch

    You're a three-decker sauerkraut
    And toadstool sandwich,
    With arsenic sauce!

    You nauseate me, Mr Grinch
    With a noxious super nos
    You're a crooked jerky jockey and,
    You drive a crooked horse
    Mr Grinch!

    Your sole is a appalling dump heap
    Overflowing with the most disgraceful
    Assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable,
    Mangled up in tangled up knots.

    You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch.
    You're a nasty wasty skunk.
    Your heart is full of unwashed socks.
    Your soul is full of gunk,
    Mr Grinch.

    The three best words that best describe you,
    Are as follows, and I quote"
    Stink!
    Stank!
    Stunk!
