Narrator: "Timon was waiting at a junction when a lion cub arrived."

Timon: "Hello,"

Narrator: "Said Timon."

Timon: "Who are you?"

Young Simba: "I'm Young Simba. Who are you?"

Timon: "I'm Timon. I run this land."

Young Simba: "So you're Timon, eh? I remember now. You got stuck in the snow. I took your passengers and Zazu the Hornbill pulled you out. I've come to help you with your passengers today."

Timon: "Help me?"

Narrator: "Said Timon."

Timon: "I can go faster than you."

Young Simba: "You can't."

Narrator: "Said Young Simba."

Timon: "I can!"

Narrator: "Huffed Timon."

Young Simba: "I'll race you."

Narrator: "Said Young Simba.

Their fleas agreed to the race going ahead.

The Animator said,

Animator: "Are you ready? Go!"

Narrator: "Timon never could go fast at first, and Young Simba drew in front.

Amelia and Abigail: "Why don't you go fast? Why don't you go fast?"

Narrator: "Called Amelia and Abigail."

Timon: "Wait and see, wait and see."

Narrator: "Hissed Timon."

Amelia and Abigail: "He's a long way ahead!"

Narrator: "They wailed.

But Timon didn't mind. He'd remembered the level crossing.

There was Young Simba, waiting at the gates, while they sailed gaily through."

Timon: "Goodbye, Young Simba!"

Narrator: "Called Timon.

After that, the paths left each other, so they couldn't see Young Simba.

Then, they had to stop at the station to let off passengers."

Timon: "Peep peep peep! Quickly, please!"

Narrator: "Called Timon, and off they went again."

Timon: "Come along, come along!"

Narrator: "Sang Timon."

Amelia and Abigail: "We're coming along, we're coming along!"

Narrator: "Sang Amelia and Abigail."

Timon: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Panted Timon, then he looked ahead. There was Young Simba, roaring triumphantly."

Timon: "Oh, dearie me. Oh, dearie me."

Narrator: "Groaned Timon."

Timon's 1st Flea: "Steady, Timon."

Narrator: "Said first flea."

Timon's 1st Flea: "We'll beat Young Simba yet."

Amelia and Abigail: "We'll beat Young Simba yet, we'll beat Young Simba yet."

Narrator: "Echoed Amelia and Abigail."

Timon: "We'll do it, we'll do it."

Narrator: "Panted Timon."

Timon: "Oh, bother! There's a station."

Narrator: "Then, he heard Young Simba."

Young Simba: "Goodbye, Timon! You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop. We cubs have to work, you know. Good-bye."

Timon: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "Thought Timon."

Timon: "We've lost."

Narrator: "But he felt better after a drink.

The signal dropped."

Timon: "Hurrah, we're off! Hurrah, we're off!"

Narrator: "Puffed Timon.

As they crossed the bridge, they heard an impatient roar.

There was Young Simba, waiting at the traffic lights.

He started with a roar, and chased on after Timon again.

Now, Timon reached his full speed. Young Simba tried hard, but Timon was too fast.

Whistling triumphantly, he plunged into the tunnel, leaving Young Simba far behind."

Timon: "I've done it! I've done it!"

Narrator: "Panted Timon."

Amelia and Abigail: "We've done it, hooray! We've done it, hooray!"

Narrator: "Chanted Amelia and Abigail, as they whooshed into the last station.

Everyone was there to celebrate Timon's victory, but they gave Young Simba a big welcome, too."

Young Simba: "Well done, Timon!"

Narrator: "Said Young Simba."

Young Simba: "That was fun. But to beat you over that hill, I should have to grow wings and be an airplane!"

Narrator: "They now keep each other very busy. They often talk about their race. But Young Simba's passengers don't like being bounced like peas in a frying pan, and Professor Porter has warned Timon not to race at dangerous speeds, so although, between you and me, they would like to have another race, I don't think they ever will, do you?"
