"Upendi" is a song from The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. It is sung by Rafiki as he encourages Kovu and Kiara to fall in love.

Lyrics

Rafiki:
There's a place where the crazy moon
Makes the monkeys sing and the baboons swoon
And the sultry scent of the lotus bloom
Will carry you away

Where the hippos swing from the jungle vines
And the rhinos rhumba in a conga line
And the pink flamingos are intertwined
As the stars come out to play

In Upendi
Where the passionfruit grows sweet
And it's so divine
That you lose your mind
As it sweeps you off your feet

In Upendi
Without a worry or a care
It just takes two
To make it true
Your heart will lead you there

Kiara: (spoken)
Where is it?

Rafiki: (spoken)
No place you don't take with you.

Rafiki:
You better watch your step 'cause the path is steep
Better hold your breath 'cause the water's deep
It's a long way down over Lovers' Leap
But falling's half the fun!

In Upendi
Where the passionfruit grows sweet
And it's so divine
That you lose your mind
As it sweeps you off your feet

In Upendi
Without a worry or a care
It just takes two
To make it true
Your heart will take you there

You can beat the bush like there's no tomorrow
From Tanganyika to Kilimanjaro
But you'll find Upendi wherever you are
Oh, underneath the sun

Kiara: (spoken)
Upendi means love, doesn't it?

Rafiki: (spoken)
Welcome to Upendi!

Rafiki:
In Upendi
Where the passionfruit grows sweet
And it's so divine
That you lose your mind
As it sweeps you off your feet

In Upendi
Without a worry or a care
It just takes two
To make it true
Your heart will take you there

Upendi
Down in Upendi
Way down
In Upendi
