"Chow Down" is a song featured in The Lion King stage musical. It is sung by Shenzi, Banzai and Ed as they attempt to eat Simba and Nala after they enter the Elephant Graveyard with Zazu. Zazu has just been cooked in the "birdie boiler" and the hyenas are closing in on Simba and Nala.


Banzai: He called us slobbering!
Shenzi: Said we were mangy!
Banzai: Did I hear stupid?
Ed: Huh?
Banzai and Shenzi: Tell us again, gee!
Banzai: It's so incredible...
Shenzi: That you're so rude
Banzai: When you're so edible
Banzai and Shenzi: When you are food!
Banzai: It's time to chow down
Banzai and Shenzi: Chow down! Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chow down!
Shenzi: I'm chompin' at the bit, baby!
Banzai: My stomach's on the growl, son!
Banzai and Shenzi: Chow down! Chow down!
Banzai and Shenzi: You've both been invited on a date Two courses handed to us on a plate We'll have you raw, won't be long to wait Seeing you're already toasty brown!
Banzai and Shenzi: Chow down! Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chow down!
Banzai: Your ribs are looking soooo tasty
Shenzi: Such chewy little chops, chums
Banzai and Shenzi: Eat up!
Shenzi: Now wasn't it her mom who ate your dad?
Banzai and Shenzi: And having parents eaten makes us mad We're gonna settle up the score a tad We've never had a snack of such renown! Chow down! Chow down!
Ed: *Maniacal Laughter*
Shenzi: What, Ed? What is it?
Banzai: Hey, did we order this dinner to go?
Shenzi: No!
Banzai: Well, there it goes!
Banzai and Shenzi: I think we should begin the meal from scratch So many juicy segments to detach Be good as gold for you're as good as carved
Shenzi: Here, kitty, kitty...
All: We're starved!
