"One Of Us [The Lion King II: Simba's Pride]" as written by Jack Feldman and Tom Snow....
Deception
Disgrace
Evil as plain as the scar on his face

Deception (An outrage!)
Disgrace (For shame!)
He asked for trouble the moment he came

Deception (An outrage!)
(He can't change his stripes)
Disgrace (For shame!)
(You know these Outsider types)
He asked for trouble the moment he came
(See you later, agitator!)
Deception (An outrage!)
(Just leave us alone!)
Disgrace (For shame!)
(Traitor, go back with your own!)
He asked for trouble the moment he came
(See you later, agitator!)

Born in grief
Raised in hate
Helpless to defy his fate
Let him run
Let him live
But do not forget what we cannot forgive

And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us
He is not part of us
Not our kind

Someone once lied to us
Now we're not so blind
For we knew he would do what he's done
And we know that he'll never be one of us

He is not one of us

Deception

Disgrace

Deception

Disgrace

Deception

    General CommentI remember this song. It brings back misty water colored memories. When I was younger I cried at this part. Now I laugh. I'm just kidding. I think, I lost the movie.

    MemoryYes they're talking about Scar; Kovu looks a bunch like him too which makes things all the more difficult for him.

    Anyway this song still gives me chills, I'm seventeen and I was somewhere between eight and ten when the movie came out, the same chills I got from "Be Prepared" and "Circle of Life" from the original. The movie itself wasn't all that great but the soundtrack is as good as the original's.

    General CommentThe movie is basically a Romeo & Juliet story, much like I've heard the first one was hamlet.
    This song is at the point where Romeo(or, Kovu, in this case) was banished for killing Tulio.

    Now that I'm older and read these lyrics, I feel more sad than when I was a child watching this. The way Simba and the other animals are so unforgiving...

    'Born in grief
    Raised in hate
    Helpless to defy his fate'
    --Helpless to defy it, yet they're still extremely put off.

    'Let him run
    Let him live
    But do not forget
    What we cannot forgive'
    --Unable to let go of the past.

    'Someone once lied to us
    Now we're not so blind'
    --They were lied to once, and they say they aren't so blind any longer...but they only gave him one chance. They wouldn't let him explain what happened. They just drove him from the pride lands...most likely out of fear, anger, discrimination...
