The score picks up at the start of Scar's speech, during which he gives his condolences to the grief-shaken pride, and concludes with the upbeat musical theme heard as Timon and Pumbaa chase away the vultures encircling Simba's fallen body.
Though this score is not apart of the original cast recording, it can be heard during the musical itself in the same sequence of events as its movie counterpart. The score was slightly altered, particularly during the scene in which vultures circle Simba's body. Officially, the score is titled, "Bowling for Buzzards."
- The first section of the score uses a similar arrangement heard in the beginning of "Father's Footsteps." It is later reused in both "Mufasa's Ghost" and "King of Pride Rock."
