I will tell the king about the desires you hold dear

The king too will be pleased to hear.

But if you were to fall in love with another

You may receive the king’s displeasure.

Your father may get you married to another man.

You may also begin to like him; that is human.

Many times people talk without purpose.

You may later feel I too was capricious.

Our lives may come in harm’s way

Is your mind firm on Nala? Now you must say.
