"A Beautiful Day (Ni Siku Nzuri)" is a song composed by Beau Black for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. It was released on January 8, 2016, as part of the soundtrack for The Lion Guard.

Overview

During production of The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar, Swahili expert Sarah Mirza was hired to help incorporate Swahili phrases into the film and its spin-off television series, The Lion Guard. "A Beautiful Day (Ni Siku Nzuri)" is among three songs in the film that feature Swahili lyrics, including "Here Comes the Lion Guard" and "Zuka Zama". Though the main verses of the song are sung in English, the backing vocals are purely Swahili, with the titular lyric "Ni siku nzuri," being heard multiple times as an echo of the chorus.

On August 17, 2015, a sneak peek of The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar was released that featured the "A Beautiful Day (Ni Siku Nzuri)" sequence in the film. The track was officially released on January 8, 2016, as part of The Lion Guard (Music from the TV Series), which is a combination of songs from the film and the television series. The soundtrack version of the song is about a minute longer than its film cut.

Kion chases his best friend, Bunga, through the Pride Lands as "A Beautiful Day (Ni Siku Nzuri)" is played

"A Beautiful Day (Ni Siku Nzuri)" is the first song heard in The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. It plays early in the film, picking up directly after Kion and Bunga take their game of Baobab Ball away from Pride Rock, where Simba is delivering a royal lesson to Kiara. The song carries through their romp through the Pride Lands and ends just as Bunga is heaved from Fuli's back and pinned to the ground by Kion.

Several lyrics were cut from the film version of the song. After the first chorus plays, the song skips over the next set of lyrics to repeat the chorus and lead to the end of the song.

Lyrics

Beau Black:
It's a good day to have some fun to run and play
The sun's so hot, it melts my worries all away
I'm gonna take it easy, got no reason to work all day
Oh, I'm gonna keep on smiling, keep on riding all the way
Come on, I'll tell ya

Chorus:
Come play with me, and we'll run free
Through the Pride Lands, up to the highest tree
Gotta live for fun, it's the only way
It's a beautiful, it's a beautiful day
(Ni siku nzuri!)It's a beautiful day!
It's a beautiful, it's a beautiful day
(Ni siku nzuri!)It's a beautiful day!

Beau Black:
Repeat Chorus

It's a beautiful, it's a beautiful day
(Ni siku nzuri!)It's a beautiful day!

Beau Black:
It's a good day to have some fun to run and play
The sun's so hot, it melts my worries all away
I'm gonna take it easy, got no reason to work all day
Oh, I'm gonna keep on smiling, keep on riding all the way
Come on, I'll tell ya

Chorus:
Come play with me, and we'll run free
Through the Pride Lands, up to the highest tree
Gotta live for fun, it's the only way
It's a beautiful, it's a beautiful day
(Ni siku nzuri!)It's a beautiful day!
It's a beautiful, it's a beautiful day
(Ni siku nzuri!)It's a beautiful day!

Beau Black:
It's a good day to have some fun to run and play
I'm gonna take my time, gonna live my life a different way
Come on, now

Repeat Chorus Twice

It's a beautiful, it's a beautiful day
(Ni siku nzuri!)It's a beautiful day!
It's a beautiful, it's a beautiful day
(Ni siku nzuri!)It's a beautiful day!
