Hakuna Matata




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!

(Instrumental Bridge)

Timon: Why, when he was a young warthog…
Pumbaa: When I was a young warthog!

Timon: (rubbing his ear) Very nice.
Pumbaa: Thanks.

Timon: He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal
He could clear the Savannah after every meal
Pumbaa: I am 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 flock!
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, kid!
Timon and Simba: It’s our problem-free…
Pumbaa: philosophy!
All: Hakuna Matata!

(Instrumental Bridge)

Timon and Pumbaa: Hakuna! Matata! (3x)

Simba: It means no worries for the rest of your days
All: It’s our problem-free philosophy
Timon: Hakuna Matata
Pumbaa: Hakuna Matata
Simba: Hakuna Matata…
