The Lion Guard

Maybe Jasiri was right. Her hyenas seem to be happy working with the Lion Guard. Wonder if we would be, too. Why am I so confused? It all used to be so simple! What changed? Think!
Janja[src]

"A New Way to Go" is a song composed by Beau Black, Ford Riley, Andrew Kishino, Sarah Mirza, and Kevin Hopps for The Lion Guard. It was released on August 3, 2019, as part of the episode "Battle for the Pride Lands".

Lyrics

Janja:
Why do I feel this way inside?
Jasiri doesn't fear me
She's been saving my hide
It's like, I know she buys the whole Circle of Life
I mean, sisi ni sawa's kinda catchy, all right
But Scar's got a big master plan, though
He'd never give me something a hyena couldn't handle
Would he?
Which side of the fight?
Could it be, maybe, that Jasiri is right?

Jasiri:
Sisi ni sawa means we're the same

Janja:
Oh, no!
It's set something off inside my brain
She says I can trust her, but I don't know
Could there really be a new way to go?

Janja and Jasiri:
A new way to go
A new way to go
Say yes instead of no
With the new way to go
A new way to go
A new way to go
Make a friend from a foe
With a new way to go

Janja:
She always eats
We're always hungry
She got a team
I got these dummies
It's like, I'd rather be happy
Than scrapping for food or respect
What's happening?
I think I see it in a different light
Maybe the stuff I thought was wrong was right
I think I like it
But I'm still undecided
How to choose, what to do?
A new way to go

Jasiri:
Sisi ni sawa means we're the same

Janja:
It's set something off inside my brain
She says I can trust her
But I don't know
Could there really be a new way to go?

Janja and Jasiri:
A new way to go
A new way to go
Say yes instead of no
With the new way to go
A new way to go
A new way to go
Make a friend from a foe
With a new way to go

Jasiri:
Sisi ni sawa means we're the same

Janja and Jasiri:
A new way to go
A new way to go
Make a friend from a foe
With a new way to go
