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

Both:
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

Timon:
Hakuna Matata!

Simba: (spoken)
Hakuna Matata?

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Yeah. It's our motto!

Simba: (spoken)
What's a motto?

Timon: (spoken)
Nothin'! What's-a-motto with you?!

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Those two words will solve all your problems.

Timon: (spoken)
That's right. Take Pumbaa here.

Timon:
Why, when he was a young warthog

Pumbaa:
When I was a young warthog

Timon: (spoken)
Very nice.

Pumbaa: (spoken)
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:
Oh, the shame!

Pumbaa:
Thought of changin' my name

Timon:
What's in a name?

Pumbaa:
And I got downhearted

Timon:
How did ya feel?

Pumbaa:
Every time that I...

Timon: (spoken)
Hey, Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids!

Pumbaa: (spoken)
Oh, sorry.

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

Simba:
It means no worries
For the rest of your days

All:
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna Matata!

Simba:
It means no worries for the rest of your days

All:
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

Pumbaa:
I say Hakuna

Timon:
I say Matata

Pumbaa:
Hakuna Matata

Timon:
Hakuna Matata
Ta-ta!
