"One By One" is a song written by Lebo M first featured on the Rhythm of the Pride Lands CD. The song was later used to open the second act of The Lion King on Broadway.

The song was used for an animated short for an unproduced Fantasia movie that was eventually cancelled. So, it was used as a bonus feature attached with the 2004 DVD release of The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.

Lyrics

Ibambeni njala bakithiHold on tight, my people
Ninga dinwaDon't get weary
Ninga phelelwa nga mandlaDon't lose your strength

Siya ba bonaWe can see
Bebe fun' ukusi qedaThey wanted to hold us back

One by One
Ngeke ba lungeThey will not succeed
One by One
Sizo nqobaWe will win

One by One
Ngeke ba lungeThey will not succeed
One by One

Ibambeni njala bakithiHold on tight, my people
Ninga dinwaDon't get weary
Ninga phelelwa nga mandlaDon't lose your strength

Siya ba bonaWe can see
Bebe fun' ukusi qedaThey wanted to hold us back

One by One
Ngeke ba lungeThey will not succeed
One by One
Sizo nqobaWe will win

Ngoba thinaBecause
