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!

Simba:
Hakuna Matata?

Pumbaa:
Yeah. It’s our motto!

Simba:
What’s a motto?

Timon:
Nothing. What’s a-motto with you?

Pumbaa:
Those two words will solve all your problems

Timon:
That’s right. Take Pumbaa here
Why, when he was a young warthog…

Pumbaa:
When I was a young wart hog

Timon:
Very nice

Pumbaa:
Thanks

Timon:
He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal
He could clear the savannah after every meal

Pumbaa:
I’m a sensitive soul though I seem thick-skinned
And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind Both:
And oh, the shame He was ashamed
Thought of changin’ my name What’s in a name?
And I got downhearted How did ya feel?
Everytime that I…

Timon:
Hey! Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids!

Pumbaa:
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

Both:
It’s our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata!
Hakuna Matata! Hakuna–

Simba:
It means no worries for the rest of your days

Both:
It’s our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!
It’s our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

Pumbaa:
I say “Hakuna”

Both:
I say “Matata”
