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.

Why, when he was a young warthog …
When I was a young warthog!
Very nice!
Thanks!
He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal.
He could clear the Savannah after ev’ry meal.
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.
Oh, what’s in a name?
And I got downhearted.
How did you feel?
Every time that I–
Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids!
Oh… sorry

Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase.
Hakuna Matata!
Ain’t no passing craze.
It means no worries
For the rest of your days
Yeah, sing it, kid!
It’s our problem-free philosophy
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!
