Medley
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!

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "The Lion King" by Hans Zimmer Lebo M are rich in symbolism and themes of life, growth, and finding one's place in the world. The opening lines, "Nants‘ngonyama bakithi Baba. ‘Ngonyama," can be translated as "Here is a lion, Father. Oh, lion." This sets the tone for the song, invoking the symbol of the lion as a powerful and majestic creature.


The song begins by conveying the vastness and wonder of the world we inhabit. It suggests that there is an infinite amount to explore, experience, and discover. The line "There's more to see than can ever be seen, More to do than can ever be done," highlights the limitless possibilities that life presents.


The next section shifts to Simba, the singer of The Lion King, who expresses his aspirations to become a king. The playful and humorous tone reflects Simba's youthful enthusiasm and optimism. However, his desires also echo universal themes of ambition and the desire for greatness.


The song transitions with "Hakuna Matata," a Swahili phrase meaning "no worries." It introduces a carefree philosophy, encouraging a life without troubles and stresses. This reflects Simba's journey of self-discovery and learning to let go of his past.


The lyrics then return to the theme of the circle of life, emphasizing the interconnectedness of all living beings. It encourages embracing one's heritage, pride, and finding one's own unique path. The repetition of the phrase "busa Simba" can be interpreted as a call for Simba to lead with love, peace, and tranquility.


Overall, "The Lion King" captures the essence of the film's themes of growth, self-discovery, and embracing one's destiny. It intertwines the playful and adventurous spirit of Simba with deeper reflections on the cyclical nature of existence and the interconnectedness of all life.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
