Lion King: Busa
Hans Zimmer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

Nants‘ngonyama bakithi Baba. ‘Ngonyama.
Nants‘ngonyama bakithi Baba. ‘Ngonyama, ‘Ngonyama.
From the day we arrive on the planet
cnd blinking step into the sun.
There's more to see than can ever be seen,
More to do than can ever be done.
There's far too much to take in here,
More to find than can ever be found;
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round.
It's the circle of life, and it moves us all
Through despair and hope, through faith and love.
‘Til we find our place, on the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life.

I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!
Well I've never seen a King of beasts with quite so little hair!
I'm gonna be the ‘mane' event, like no King was before,
I'm brushing up on looking down, I'm working on my ROcR!

Thus far a rather uninspiring thing.
Oh, I just can't wait to be King!

Everybody look left,
Everybody look right,
Everywhere you look I'm
Standing in the spotlight.

Let every creature go for broke and sing,
Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing,
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling.
Oh, I just can't wait to be King!

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.

c-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh,
c-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh,
c-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh.
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.

c-ooh, ooh, wimoweh!
c-ooh, ooh, wimoweh!
c-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh,
c-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh,
c-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh,
c-wimoweh, a-wimoweh, a-wimoweh.

cnd where the journey may lead you,
Let this prayer be your guide.
Though it may take you so far away,
clways remember your Pride.

Hem na iyo, hem na iyo, hem na nkosi bo, busa Simba iyo.
Hem na iyo, hem na iyo, hem na nkosi bo, busa Simba iyo.
Ubuse ngo thando, ubuse ngo thando.
Ubuse ngo xolo, busa Simba, busa Simba.
Ubuse ngo xolo, ubuse ngo thando, ubuse ngo xolo.





‘Til we find our place on the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life, circle of life!
