Circle of Life (from "The Lion King")

By Elton John

Nants ingonyama bagithi baba [There comes a lion]

Sithi uhhmm ingonyama [Oh yes, it's a lion]

Nants ingonyama bagithi baba [There comes a lion]

Sithi uhhmm ingonyama [Oh yes, it's a lion]

Ingonyama

Siyo Nqoba [We're going to conquer]

Ingonyama
Ingonyama nengw' enamabaal
[It's a lion and a tiger]
{Repeats 5 times}

Ingonyama nengw' enamabala (Se-to-kwa!)
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala (Asana)
{Repeats 1 time}

From the day we arrive on the planet
And, blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all

Through despair and hope
Through faith and love

Till we find our place
On the path unwinding

In the Circle
The Circle of Life

It's The Circle of Life

And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love

Till we find our place

On the path unwinding

In the Circle
The Circle of Life


From the musical, "The Lion King."
