# There's one really jazzy chord in here you mightn't have seen before
# but don't worry, it's not hard. Here it is tabbed out, along with the C9 C9:

# Bm7b5 Bm7b5: C9 C9

# |----0----| |----1----|
# |----1----| |----0----|
# |----2----| |----2----|
# |----4----| |----0----|

# Also, there's a G7 G7 thrown in (marked with a *) but it's optional, it sounds fine
# without it.

Intro: Am Am Dm Dm

Am Am Dm Dm
I know that your powers of retention
Em Em Am Am
Are as wet as a warthog's backside.
Dm Dm
But thick as you are pay attention
Em Em Am Am
My words are a matter of pride.

Cm Cm Am Am
It's clear from your vacant expressions,
Cm Cm Am Am
The lights are not all on upstairs.
But we're talking kings, and successions,
Bm7b5 Bm7b5 E7 E7
Even YOU can't be caught unawares...

Am Am Dm Dm
So prepare for the chance of a lifetime,
Be prepared for sensational news...
Em Em Am Am Dm Dm G G
A A shining new era is tip-toeing nearer
Em Em Am Am
And where do we feature?
Dm Dm G G
Just listen to teacher.

I know it sounds sordid,
C9 C9
But you'll be rewarded
A7 A7 Dm Dm
When at last I am given my dues,
Bm7b5 Bm7b5 E E
And injustice, deliciously squared,
E E Am Am F F
Be prepared!

# (Chords during conversation between scar and hyenas)
# E7 E7 Am Am Dm Dm Em Em Am Am Dm Dm Em Em Am Am Cm Cm Am Am Cm Cm Am Am # G G C C Bm7b5 Bm7b5 E E

Am Am Dm Dm
It's great that we'll soon be connected
Em Em Am Am
With a king who'll be all time adored.
Dm Dm
Of course, quid pro quo, you're expected,
Em Em Am Am
To take certain duties on board...

Cm Cm Am Am
The future is littered with prizes
Cm Cm Am Am
And though I'm the main addressee,
G G G7 G7* C C
The point that I must emphasize is,
Bm7b5 Bm7b5 E E

Am Am Dm Dm
So prepare for the coup of the century
Be prepared for the murkiest scam
Em Em Am Am Dm Dm G G
Meticulous planning, tenacity spanning,
Em Em Am Am
Decades of denial
Dm Dm G G
Is simply why I'll
Be king undisputed,
C9 C9
respected, saluted,
A7 A7 Dm Dm
And seen for the wonder I am.
Bm7b5 Bm7b5 E E
Yes my teeth and ambitions are bared.
E E Am Am
Be Prepared!
Bm7b5 Bm7b5 E E
Yes our teeth and ambitions are bared,
Am Am
Be prepared!

Outro (over 'wild laughter') F F E E Am Am

My first thought was "man, these chords are all over the place", but then I played along and apparently the song is just all over the place.

Easily 10/10. The only bit I'm having trouble with is in the chorus where you have two C chords in a row...the second C chord definitely has a seventh note somewhere in it, but a standard C7 (0001) doesn't sound very good. I tried a different C7 voicing (3003) which was a little better, and a C9 (0201), which is the best I've been able to come up with.
