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
It's our problem-free
Philosophy
Hakuna Matata
Instrumental Break

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:

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: (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

Timon:

Yeah, sing it, kid!

Simba and Timon:

It's our problem-free...

Pumbaa:

Philosophy!

All:

Hakuna Matata!
Instrumental Break

Timon and Pumbaa:

Hakuna! Matata!
Hakuna! Matata!
Hakuna! Matata!
Hakuna!

Simba:

It means no worries
For the rest of your days

All:

It's our problem-free
Philosophy!

Timon:

Hakuna Matata!

Pumbaa:

Hakuna! Matata!
Hakuna! Matata!
Hakuna! Matata!
Hakuna! Matata!

Simba:

Hakuna Matata!

Timon:

Hakuna Matata!

Simba:

Hakuna Matata!

Timon:

Hakuna Matata!

Pumbaa:

Ooh-ooh-ooh!
