  • Simba (S)


Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase (T)

Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze  (P)

It means no worries for the rest of your days (T)

It's our problem-free philosophy (T)

Hakuna Matata! (P)

Hakuna Matata? (S)

Yeah. It's our motto!

What's a motto?   (S)

Nothing. What's a-motto with you?

Those two words will solve all your problems (P)

That's right. Take Pumbaa here    (T)
Why, when he was a young warthog...

When I was a young wart hog (P)

Very nice (T)

Thanks (P)

He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal  (T)
He could clear the savannah after every meal (T)

I'm a sensitive soul though I seem thick-skinned
And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind
And oh, the shame		He was ashamed
Thought of changin' my name	What's in a name?
And I got downhearted		How did ya feel?
Everytime that I... (P)

Hey! Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids! (T)
Oh. Sorry (P)

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze

It means no worries for the rest of your days

It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna--

It means no worries for the rest of your days

It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!
(Repeats)

I say "Hakuna"

I say "Matata"
