"My Lullaby [The Lion King II: Simba's Pride]" as written by Joss Hill Whedon and Scott Warrender....
Hush, my little one; you must be exhausted.
Sleep, my little Kovu
Let your dreams take wing
One day when you're big and strong
You will be a king
I've been exiled, persucuted
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
So you found yourself somebody who'd chase Simba up a tree
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
Scar is gone... but Zira's still around
To love this little lad
Till he learns to be a killer
With a lust for being bad!
Sleep, ya little termite!
Uh-- I mean, precious little thing!
One day when you're big and strong
You will be a king!
The pounding of the drums of war
The thrill of Kovu's mighty roar
The joy of vengeance
Testify!
I can hear the cheering
Kovu! What a guy!
Payback time is nearing
And then our flag will fly
Against a blood-red sky
That's my lullaby!

    General CommentIt's this song that makes me realise that Zira is far more evil than Scar ever was.

    Scar killed his brother, yes, and took over the Pride Lands, but the drought and starvation that followed was just due to him being a poor leader, and since he wasn't fit to lead, he screwed up. His fault was his ambition, and the lengths he would go to succeed.

    Zira, on the other hand, wants revenge. She's so consumed by it that thinking about is her goddamn lullaby! She want's to kill Simba, but she also wants to kill his child, and tear down his entire kingdom in the name of vengeance.

    Now, Scar was no good guy, but ambition is a much nobler trait than bloodlust.
