Lyrics

Timon:

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase!

Pumbaa:

Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze!

Timon:

It means no worries
For the rest of your days

Timon and Pumbaa:

It's our problem-free philosophy

Timon:

Hakuna Matata
Why! When he was a young warthog

Pumbaa:

When I was a young warthog!

Timon:

Very nice.

Pumbaa:

Thanks.

Timon:

He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal
He could clear the savanna after every meal

Pumbaa:

I'm a sensitive soul though I seem thick skinned
And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind
And, oh, the shame

Timon:

He was ashamed!

Pumbaa:

Thought of changing my name

Timon:

Oh, what's in a name?

Pumbaa:

And I got downhearted

Timon:

How did you feel?

Pumbaa:

Every time that I...

Timon:

Hey, Pumbaa, not in front of the kids

Pumbaa:

Oh, sorry

Timon and Pumbaa:

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

Simba:

It means no worries
For the rest of your days

Timon:

Yeah, sing it, kid!

Simba and Timon:

It's our problem-free

Pumbaa:

Philosophy

All:

Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna...it means no worries
For the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

Lyrics (Rhythm Of The Pride Lands)

Hakuna Matata!
Hem hollolo iyo
Hakuna Matata!
Hem may'babo


When I was a cool young one
(When he was a cool young one)
I worked in the colony, paying my dues
Accepting without question the prevailing views
That a young man's life was one long grind
Diggin' holes, standin' guard till it crossed my mind
I was wrong
All along
All that I needed
Was to have heeded


Chorus:

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 a problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!


When I was a shallow youth
(When he was a shallow youth)
Cool calm reflection
I was never that good
I was a pawn in the game, I saw no trees for the wood
My future stretched behind me
I was over the hill
I put my best foot forward
But the other stood still
Take my word
I have heard
All that I needed
Was to have heeded


Repeat chorus


Hakuna Matata!
Hem hollolo iyo
Hakuna Matata!
Hem may'babo


Hakuna Matata!
I hope we have conveyed
You don't have to bust a gut in the sun
It's much cooler in the shade
Some say it's just a waste of time
But they don't realize
That view is nothing but a crime
We are creatures worldly wise


Repeat chorus
