Hakuna Matata - Jimmy Cliff

Hakuna Matata! (6x)

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

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
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 one stood still

Take my word
I have heard
All that I needed
Was to have heeded


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
